Uproar Over Kisumu Governor Nyong'o's Plans to Relocate Iconic Kisumu Boys and Girls Away from CBD

Education stakeholders from Kisumu county have come out breathing fire over Kisumu Governor Prof Anyang Nyong'o's attempts to relocate Kisumu boys and Girls from CBD.

The two iconic schools that have stood in the Town center occupying a vast piece of land that Anyang sees as a loss of revenue, have produced great men and women over the past years.

Blocking his attempts, Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers(KUPPET) leaders from the county joined other critics saying Anyang's plans were misplaced and ill-informed.

Kisumu’s Kuppet executive secretary Zablon Awange accused him of not involving them and the public through public participation so that they can give their thoughts on the plans claiming that all the stakeholders had been sidelined in the proposal to relocate the two schools.

They also accused Anyang of neglecting the education sector by failing to address challenges such ad poor infrastructure in Early Childhood Centers.

Anyang said that he plans to have the two schools relocated so that they can pave way for the establishment of economic spaces within the city.

According to him, the county government needed to make the land useful and instead of having schools there, an integrated urban center should be constructed.

However, the proposed relocation process is expected to kick off in 2030 as it's a very technical process that requires a lot of planning.
