According to the new Narok County Commissioner, Isaac Masinde education stakeholders met and agreed to leave no stone unturned until all of the children who were absent from school returned to class.

Masinde also directed chiefs and their assistants to ensure that all children within their jurisdiction attend school, with the assistance of assistant county commissioners.

“I have directed all administrators to carry out a door to door campaign to ensure there is 100 per cent school attendance for all school-going children,” he said, adding that they will be holding several Barraza in the most affected areas to sensitize the residents on the importance of taking children to school.

He stated that all children have the right to free education and that no child should be sent home by teachers due to a lack of school fees or uniforms, as the government expects children to attend school.

He warned those who use children as labourers to graze livestock or on farms that they risk being arrested and prosecuted in court.

At the same time, the County Commissioner issued a warning to female genital mutilation (FGM) practitioners, stating that their days were numbered as they would intensify campaigns to identify them and ensure they face the legal process.

 

“FGM is one of the major hindrances to education. The victims mostly drop out of school to get married or get pregnant. This is why we want to fight this outdated practice,” said Masinde.

 

Some of the interventions proposed to keep children in school included the implementation of school feeding programs in all public primary schools, low-cost boarding schools, the distribution of sanitary towels, and the empowerment of women.
