Those who did not want to join secondary school were encouraged to enroll in Technical and Vocational Educational and Training (TVET) institutes for further studies.

 

“Those who feel they cannot join secondary schools should enroll in TVET institutes hence there should be no excuse why a student does not further their education,” he said

 

The CC stated that a County Education Board would be formed soon to ensure that students in all subcounties who completed class 8 successfully transition to secondary school.

 

 

 

The government is attempting to reduce the waste of bright students between classes 8 and form one by providing the resources required for candidates to transition.

 

Komora pleaded with parents to assist the government in its efforts to provide infrastructure and bursaries for students.

 

He encouraged them to apply for other types of government or non-governmental bursaries, such as those offered by the National Government Constituencies Development Fund NG-CDF, the Equity Foundation, Mpesa Foundation, and Family Bank, among others.

 

“Most times the government pays half and the parents the other half. Parents should therefore take advantage of other forms of bursaries,” he said.

 

While at it, he urged politicians to hold peaceful rallies when soliciting votes in order to maintain a peaceful environment during the election period.
