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.
