Schools to get power by next June ahead of laptop project

What you need to know:

  • Mr Serem said it would be pointless for schools to be given laptops when electricity was not available.
  • Mr Gicharu, who was accompanied by Aldai MP Cornelius Serem, asked Kenyans to give the government time to deliver on its election pledges and urged parents to invest in education.
  • At the same time, the Knut leaders asked the government to repair many of the impassable roads leading to some rural schools, which had made it difficult for teachers reach school on time.

The free primary school laptops project is expected to be rolled out next June when most public schools will have been supplied with power, the Rural Electrification Authority (REA) has announced.
