Nairobi - The government has distributed 1.2 million laptops in preparation for the digital learning programme in primary schools January.

This was revealed by Deputy President William Ruto on Saturday as he launched the Standard One laptop programme at Burandwa Primary School in Kakamega County.

"We have trained 80,000 teachers and distributed 1.2m laptops in readiness for roll out of digital learning in all primary schools in January," said the Deputy President.

More laptops will be distributed in primary schools across the country by the end of the year.

The devices include laptops for teachers, tablets for pupils and braille embossers for special learners, projectors, digital content servers and wireless routers. The move sets pace for the country’s techy-savvy generation.

The laptops have been produced by JKUAT and Moi University who won the tender. The two institutions will be assembling 750,000 devices annually.

The State is also expected to train more teachers to bring the total to 84,000 teachers under the DLP programme.
