Murugi: Every child should get an education

18 July 2012, 11:21 Joseph Mukubwa

Special Programmes Minister Esther Murugi has urged the parents and other education stakeholders to ensure every child get access to quality education.

She said all children needs best education so that they can prosper in their future adding that cooperation between parents, teachers and children will help bring good performance to all students.

The Minister was speaking in Nyeri Primary School during Nyeri Central District’s Education Day.

“I also wish primary schools from the district can start offering information communication technology (ICT) studies so as to enable students have some employable skills even if they will not proceed to university level,” she said.

Murugi also faulted the government’s policy of upgrading some existing secondary schools to national level.

She cited the case of Kagumo High School which is in Nyeri County noting that by elevating the school to national level it has blocked many children from the local area from being enrolled in the school.

“I propose that the government should consider building national schools from the scratch rather taking up schools which have been built by the community using resources from the community,” she added.

Meanwhile she also faulted the recent court ruling on the appointment of 47 county commissioners adding that the constitution gives the executive power to restructure the provincial administration saying that other ministries have sent their representatives to the counties.

She said that the commissioners were to set up structures for county government before governors take up  offices after the general  elections.

Murugi who is also the Nyeri Town MP accused those who are talking on consultations saying they are taking the issue too far and that the president has powers to make decisions on matters concerning national interests.
