He stated that he will start by ensuring that he does away with the interviews for teachers recruitment and also ensure that teachers are employed according the year one graduated.Photo: Peter Kaluma, Homa Bay Town lawmaker.
He further said that under his leadership, the teachers will be employed within the three years of graduation to reduce the number of unemployed teachers in the country.
"I will scrap the proposed mandatory training for teachers programme if it would have been implemented by the time Raila takes over the reigns of the government," he tweeted.
The lawmaker further noted that he will restructure the Higher Education Loans Board(HELB) and transform it into grant and ensure that it is available to all the qualifed students before the beginning of every semester.
"HELB grant shall not attract interest, and HELB clearance shall not be a requirement in first time employment," he added.
