Laptops will come in 2015, Kaimenyi promises Kenyans

29 December 2014, 13:30 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Laptops will still be afforded to Kenyan students, education CS Jacob Kaimenyi has insisted.

The controversial laptop tender has yet to be implemented, over a year since the Jubilee government came into power, with the project one of its flagship deals.

Kaimenyi though, says that it is still in the pipeline and that there should be no room for worry from Kenyans over the matter.

" The implementation phase is on the way and we will have it done as promised to Kenyans by 2015," he said Monday while releasing results for the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education KCPE.

He added that at present, plans are afoot to ensure that teachers are trained to be able to deal with the laptops.

" Teachers will be trained next year on the laptops so that we can have at-least 60,000 of them ready to impart knowledge to students without any problems," he added.

Kaimenyi also insisted that the laptops would be beneficial to students once the project kicks off.

" This project will be beneficial to students. That is not a matter of discussion," he added.

The laptop project has been hit by several problems, including issues over tendering, which have forced parliament and the courts to stop the project in its tracks.
