Kibra Constituency has partnered with various National Polytechnics in Nairobi County to equip Kibra constituents with technical skills that will boost their income.
Kibra MP Peter Orero says that one of the schools they have partnered with includes Kabete National Polytechnic that is giving the students with crafts and artisan courses.
Orero says that so far over 500 students have already been admitted into Kabate Polytechnic and are currently pursuing the courses.
“Over 500 students have been admitted at Kabete National polytechnic to improve on their technical skills skills, even those who have no academic certificates we are going to admit them there to ensure that they have started with artisan courses. Education is good and if you want to know its importance give me time you will see its fruits,” he said.
Bursary cheques issuance
Orero who is a retired teacher spoke while issuing bursary cheques to over 10,000 students from Kibra Constituency.
“Today we are giving out cheques to over 10,000 students from my constituency and I promise that I will be moving from one door to the other to ensure that each and every child from the slum has accessed education.
“I am speaking as a teacher and I know the importance of education. It is very unfortunate that our Government delayed money bur this is just a start. You can see that we have stated renovating our Olympics primary school and. We soon we are going to renovate our roads especially those that are connecting with school,” said the legislator.
The MP also faulted Kibera police station OCS for compromising peaceful demonstrators during Azimio demonstrations.
“Our OCS should protect our people during Demonstrations and he should stop being used politically. We people of Kibera are very peaceful and we know how to demonstrate. Kindly bwana DC talk to him. Also I want to warn mainstream media houses to know our Kibera territory, they reported that a lorry that was burned in Lang’ata was near Kibera and that posta scene along Ngong road was near Kibera slums. This should stop a minibus was burned outside kibera so they should stop profiling my people that is unwelcome,” he added.
More than Ksh.40 Million has been set aside for bursary in Kibera where by each student who applied for it will be given at least Ksh. 5,000. Rosemary Odinga graced the occasion.
