St. Peters Mumias Boys High School principal Cosmas Nabungolo has identified education as the best tool to drive economic empowerment among the youths within Kiminini constituency and Trans Nzoia at large.
Mr. Nabungolo noted that education is critical in powering skills for white collar jobs and development of innovative ideas in addition to growth of talents which are instrumental in economic development.
“It is my appeal to all parents to prioritise education which is one of my agendas in my pursuit of the Kiminini parliamentary seat in 2022,” he spoke at the burial of Mrs. Florence Khaemba in Kiminini.
The deceased who was a banker, was the wife of Prof. Batan Khaemba, a university don who also vied for the Kiminini parliamentary seat in 2013 on the defunct New Ford Kenya party ticket.
The principal called on teachers within the region to make use of technology to keep on with teaching sessions for students who are not attending classes due to Covid 19 containment measures.
“I call on teachers within Trans Nzoia County to make use of technology like the ZOOM video conferencing application to cover the respective syllabuses. We must take advantage of technology,” said Mr. Nabungolo.
He said he has set sights on vying for the parliamentary seat in 2022 having served in the education sector for long saying he has gained enough experience and leadership skills.
Trans Nzoia woman representative Janet Nangabo has in the meantime warned leaders in the region who are fanning tribal divisions ahead of the 2022 general elections to change their ways.
“Leaders should highlight what they seek to deliver for the electorate instead of banking on mongering hatred among communities and attacking other leaders to appear smart,” said Mrs. Nangabo.
Senate speaker Kenneth Lusaka promised that the stalemate on the revenue sharing formula will soon be resolved.
