Deputy Governor Criticised For Giving Pupils A VIP Ride To Motivate Them

The Deputy Governor of Machakos County Hon. Francis Maliti has received both praise and criticism after he gave two pupils of Kikeniani primary school in Kyua, Katangi Ward a ride in his VIP car as a way of motivating them following their consistent impressive academic performance.

The deputy governor highlighted the need to encourage and motivate pupils because they are our future leaders. Besides giving the two pupils a VIP ride, the leader and those who accompanied him raised money for buying shoes for pupils who did not own a pair. He also involved the county's Department of water in reviving the school's borehole whose work had not progressed for two years. Below is the full post as posted on his Facebook account;
