This is a step that has been reached following a directive by President Uhuru Kenyatta on Mashujaa Day, where he directed that 10,000 new classes be built in secondary schools to give room for the students who will be joining junior secondary in the year 2023.
Speaking at Nyalkinyi Secondary School in Homabay Town Constituency during his meeting with sub-county leaders, Homabay County commissioner Moses Lilan said that the construction of those classes will commence as soon as possible and by April 2022, they will be ready.
Lilan continued by saying that they are going to connect with Homabay county contractors so that they can secure the contracts. he added that they have already put down strategies to ensure that all the equipment that will be meant for use in the construction are used appropriately, as he urged all the sub-county officials to stress on that.
