Nairobi County Assembly members have launched a process to reclaim some public schools in Nairobi that had been privatised.
Nominated MCA Mary Ariviza says that they have moved a motion to investigate how the five public schools had been taken over by their sponsors.
The five schools include Visa Oshwal, St. Peter’s Clavers, Khalsa and Catholic Parochial.
According to Ariviza, the latest school to have been taken over was St. Peter’s Claver which was taken by the Catholic Church.
‘‘Some of them like St Peters Clevers and Visa Oshawal have been taken and I think as county government we stand accused for sleeping on the job,” said Ariviza.
Westlands MP Tim Wanyonyi has already moved to court to have the Visa Oshwal reverted to the public.
“Already honourable Tim Wanyonyi moved to court and initiated the legal process of taking over Visa Oshwal Primary,’’Ariviza said.
The motion passed on Wednesday is already enjoying massive support from majority of the MCAs.
‘‘We have already been served and many of us are standing for it and we shall be engaging interested parties and we are telling our CECs to ensure that they have these schools back,’’ She added.
