Uhuru revives laptop-for-schools promise

25 May 2015, 11:37 Nechesa Chemoi

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta has said the long awaited free laptop-for-schools project will be implemented this year.

Speaking in Nyeri on Saturday, the president said the laptops will not be handed over to school children as proposed earlier; instead they will be given to school administrators who will be in charge.

“The government is true to its words. We will definitely deliver the laptop promise this year.

“Those who thought that this laptop project has failed are in for a rude shock,” President Kenyatta added.

The cost of purchasing 400,000 laptops has already been factored in the 2015/2016 budget estimates presented in Parliament this month.

President Kenyatta and his deputy William promised they would introduce laptops in primary schools if they won elections but 2 years after winning the elections, the project has not yet been implemented due to tendering row.

The government was planning to shelve the project and give the pupils tablets, but the decision seems to have been reversed.
