Muringato Primary school is close to 65 years old. It has looked like the wooden structure below - for over the last 30 years. It is arguably one of the worst schools infrastructure-wise in the Mt Kenya region.
We have had to rehabilitate Muringato using NG-CDF Funds and we did so over 6 months; and we have the picture alongside the first one.
But this also means we have spent money that could have gone to other Nyeri Town NG-CDF expectations but didn’t (to the lose of our constituency), while there was actually money that would have done this at the Ministry but wasn’t given to this particular school.
This has led me to do some research on how infrastructural funds have been allocated over the last 8 years. What I am hearing - though unconfirmed - is very VERY worrying, especially as regards Mt Kenya schools.
So this year I want to mainstream this conversation so that I - and everyone else - will understand how & where all the funds allocated by MoE for infrastructure upgrading over the years, has gone. I also want Kenyans to know who determines where such monies goes, how much goes there, and why; etc.
The situation spreads across the country with schools and schooling children putting up with dilapidated buildings.
