H.E. Joseph Lenku commissioned a new class block and four ultra-modern dormitories with a capacity of two hundred students at The Namelok Vocational Training Institute. The institution has for the longest time experienced low student intake ratios and it is hoped that once completed, the dormitory will accommodate more students with an unprecedented intake of more than two hundred students set for May this year. Among these will be beneficiaries of the Vijana Tujiajiri Programme; a paid partnership between the County Government of Kajiado and The KCB Foundation that seeks to empower and equip needy and out of school youth with technical skills that will enable them to pursue self-employment opportunities.

During the function, the Governor also inspected the ongoing works at the practical’s workshop and revealed that Ksh16M had been set aside by The County Government to equip the new workshop once completed. He said empowerment of the youth through skills training was one of his administration’s key development pursuits in line with the Big Four Agenda on manufacturing, job creation and youth empowerment.

“The youth are taking over leadership roles in the County and we need to empower them through technical skills training and critical thinking,” said Lenku.

At the same time, The Governor challenged the youth to seek admission to technical institutions and pursue skills-based trainings in diverse fields such as electrical engineering, fashion, design, beauty therapy and masonry just to mention but a few.

“Technical skills training will not only mold learners to settle for employment upon graduation but empower them and offer them opportunities to be employers through startup businesses,’’ he added.

Lenku also challenged stakeholders in the education sector to tailor make course content with due regards to the needs of the localities in which the technical skills will be used.

In its current state, the Namelok Vocational Training Institute accommodates a mere seventy students and over the years has had to turn back students during enrolment due improper and insufficient infrastructure.

Kajiado Governor Dr. David Nkedianye in the company of  Magadi ward  MCA Peter Pariken, CECM in charge of water Jeremiah Nairowua and other county officials began a three day tour in Magadi to visit development projects in the area.


The county boss started his tour by visiting Shompole health centre to check on a chain- link fence constructed by the county to cub wild animals and later visited Shompole sale yard before heading to Oloika primary school to inspect a new ECDE classroom.

Education level in public schools in the ward has been worrying and the governor encouraged teachers to work harder.

“A mean score of less than 280 is still very low.We have been at Oloika primary, Magadi primary and Orkiramatian boarding primary and their results have not been impressive.There are many public schools in this county which are scoring a mean score of 300 marks and above and we want the same to be attained in this ward too. This ward can only be good if we produce our own doctors, nurses, lawyers.” Nkedianye said.


Among the cause of poor result in the area is the current drought in the county with many children forced to stay away from school because of hunger. The governor added the county will be supplying food to all schools. The county government will also provide diesel to all boreholes and water catchment area in the drought affected areas to help residents to access water.


The county boss while speaking in Orkiramatian said his government  has built several ECDE classrooms in the ward including 3 classrooms in Odonyo Onyokie primary, 2 classrooms at Ilparakuo, Oloibor Toto,lenkobei, longosua in musenke  and many others.

The kamorora hills dispute between loodokilani and  the loita of Narok county has agitated the locals after the loita killed a young child and loodokilani people insists the hill belong to Kajiado despite  leaders  assuring them of their support.

The governor also visited Entasopia market which is one of the flagship project and the market is already fenced and the phase two of the market is about  to commence .

The county CEO ended this tour by visiting Musenke water project, dispensary and the school. Many residents of Loodokikani and Magadi ward assured the governor of their support in the August post election.

The water project will supply water to Musenke primary school, Musenke dispensary and the market place.

Kajiado governor together with area MCA Peter Pariken toured the area to access the water project.

The Governor speaking to the residents said, “This project is instrumental in supporting the people of musenke who for a long time have stayed without water and in 2014 we did this project and it has made a big impact simply because water has now been piped to the school, market and dispensary.”

Ntoyian ole Kotikash the chairman of the water project said the project has been of help.

He added that there have been challenges at the project due to the flooding of Ewaso -Nyiro River due to rains in the highlands affecting water supply to the borehole due to siltation.
