Nairobi - Kenyan legislators were in awe when they visited Rwanda to study their Government's for its implementation of the One Laptop per Child programme, which Kenya hopes to roll out early 2014.
The delegation of 30 MPs visited the country so as to understand the one laptop per child concept, and visited Gahini Primary School in Kayonza District on Tuesday, which is one of the schools where the programme has been implemented, New Times reports.
In a statement to the media after the tour, Julius K. Melly, the Chairman of Education Committee and leader of the delegation, said that
their tour of Rwanda was very interesting and that Kenya wants to emulate their progress with the programme, with an initial investment of KES15 billion next year.
