Nyeri - The Cabinet Secretary in charge of Transport and Infrastructure, Micheal Kamau has ordered the removal of offensive images from school buses and vans.
Kamau noted that it is illegal to paste undesirable display materials such as adverts depicting alcohol, cigarettes and pornography on or inside school buses and vans.
He said the order also applies to private buses and vans that are used to transport students, adding that the Ministry of Education has provided guidelines on school transportation and it is upon the school administrations to ensure that the guidelines are adhered to.
“All school buses and vehicles should be comprehensively insured. They must be fitted with speed governors, be well maintained and drivers and their assistants should be qualified, experienced and PSV licensed,” he explained.
The CS spoke at Kanjuri High School, Mathira when he presided over celebraions to mark the school’s golden jubilee.
He was accompanied by area MP Peter Weru and other officials from the county government of Nyeri.
Kamau further advised educationists to nurture youths by instilling in them proper societal values of honesty, obedience and hard work.
“This will fortify the youths against pitfalls of evil, such as drug abuse, alcoholism and negative peer pressure,” Kamau observed.
