KDRTV notes that the equipment will be financed by the Ksh. 1.9 billion Economic Stimulus Program and CDEs award contracts to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and Kazi Mtaani youth to manufacture the lockers

The package will benefit 30 public primary and secondary schools in each sub-county

“We usually give you responsibilities but you never complete them. That is why you see me going to the fields (for inspections). We shall come and interrogate you on the level of preparedness.

“We will also want to know how you issued the contracts. If your brother has a workshop that is not functioning, don’t give him the tender. However, do not discriminate against local firms too,” Magoha directed.

Reports illuminate that the desks will be made in a unique way such that each pupil will have a personal desk with a space to hold books and a large writing surface

The emergency meeting affirmed that social distancing will be strictly observed in primary and secondary schools and this would involve the implementation of single-locker and chair sitting in secondary schools.
