M.r Josephat Chimwani.
Teachers in Eshiamboko primary school in Lurambi district outskirts of Kakamega county have found themselves in a very tight condition claiming that they have no ready water potholes that will help them maintain a high level of hygiene as Kcpe exams kick on 22nd of March.
Led by the headmaster M.r Josephat Chimwani, they explain that they aren't able to maintain Coronavirus stipulated measures due to the high level of poverty that they are going through and thereby requesting Lurambi member of parliament Hon. Titus Khamala among many other leaders in the county to hurry up in the exercise.
"Water scarcity is one of the reasons that will contribute to lower grades to our candidates. Imagine pupils being forced to go fetch water from community flowing stream before sitting up for exams. How does it sound? despite we being a public institution, some private schools in the county are in a better position than we are ", paragraphed M.r Josephat Chimwani.
He went on that;
"There are many chances that our girls may be hurt in the process mainly because many of them are always forced to travel long distances in search of water, an act he added that always interrupt with a classes time table.
Consequently, Josephat Chimwani continues that most of the parents in the school are so poor and whenever they call for fundraising by the board little is achieved as most guardians claim they are jobless.
"This issue of water scarcity hasn't started today. We have organized for fundraising simultaneously but whenever we sum up we count to be less than Ksh 10000 yet the school has more than 3000 pupils ", he added.
Students fetch water from a flowing river.
