Water tanks.

During this collaboration, the legislator added, the partners and schools will work together to determine how to best connect their resources and interests with the school’s unique needs.

While addressing parents and teachers of Ngoliba Secondary School in Thika East after donating a 10,000-litre tank of water to the school, the MP talked of his vision to provide water tanks to all schools with intention of ensuring that all schools had a steady supply of clean and safe drinking water throughout the year.

“We shall also roll out another programme to harvest all rain in schools and store them into water pans that will later be used to pump water for domestic use and also irrigation,” he said.

He talked of his intention to start a tree planting drive in all institutions of learning where they will specifically plant fruit trees which will serve as a source of shade, conserve the environment and provide fruits for both consumption as well as for sale.

He promised to put up a 100,000 litre tank to serve the residents of Ngoliba and Gatiiguru with water pumped from the nearby Chania River.

Polytechnics and cottage industries.

“We shall also introduce 2 technical classes in all our Jua Kali yards with qualified tutors to who will provide lessons to these artisans at their own convenience. This will transform our Jua Kali sector into cottage industries,” he concluded.
