MCA to provide free lunch for all STD 8 candidates during KCPE.


Witeithie Ward MCA Julius Macharia Taki has promised to provide free lunch and bottled drinking water to all the candidates sitting for this year’s Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) exams in his ward during the entire examination period.

While speaking exclusively to Thika Town Today, Macharia said that his office would make prior arrangements to have the food prepared and delivered to all the public schools.

A civic leader said the move was aimed at helping children from humble background who cannot afford to pay the required lunch fee.

Macharia said that his gesture was occasioned by a request by a section of parents and teachers during a prayers day at Nyacaba Primary School.

“This will motivate all those unable to pay for the school lunch and assist them to concentrate with their studies and eventually perform well in their examinations,” he said.

He added that the food donation was a relief to their parents who would now be able to attend to other domestic matters without worrying about their sons and daughters.
