In Summary;

  • Educ. Ministry’s take
  • Wamunyinyi’s reaction
  • Way forward
The toilets sunk in June 2020… an #iKUWEiKUWE rat at the Educ. Ministry offices indicate that they indeed received the complain but due to bureaucracy they’ve been unable to step in swiftly.

On Monday 6th Oct 2020 parent’s representatives to class 8 pupils at Moi D.E.B. Primary school – Bungoma honoring an invitation to attend a back-to-school preparation meeting were dumbstruck by the sight of sinking girls’ toilets alongside a condemned abolition block for boys. In the meeting that saw the representatives decide to hold a harambee to get funds for construction of a new abolition block as a quick-fix solution, they also proposed that each parent contributes 500/= to buy Covid-19 related items like thermoguns, sanitizers, soaps, facemasks and drilling of water. The meeting was convened by Mr. Wanyama the Head teacher

The representative’s resolutions will be shared and deliberated upon by the entire parenthood of class 6,7 and 8 who’ll meet on Friday, 9th Oct 2020 then the same will apply on Monday, 12th Oct 2020 when ECDE and Class 1-5 parents will meet. The collective resolutions will then be presented to the BOARD by the Chairman of the Parents’ Association for approval

The area MP, Hon. Atanus Wafula Wamunyinyi fearing a political backlash should the harambee go on as suggested by parent representatives… ordered the CDF funds meant to repair of classes at the same institution be diverted to construction of abolition block. The cheque according to an #iKUWEiKUWE rat stationed at the Kanduyi CDF offices will be ready on Friday for collection.

This therefore means parents will bear the burden of topping up any extra financial cost after the 700k is exhausted… A fact that has forced parents to continue with harambee plans especially now that the Education ministry has announced opening dates for schools.
