A section of
Bungoma County-Mt. Elgon: Secondary school principals in Mt. Elgon are pleased with the way the area MP John Serut is handling constituency development funds.
Speaking during a consultative forum of school heads held at St. Mary’s Kibuk girls in Mt. Elgon, the heads led by their chairman Nicholas Kiboi said the funds have helped them a lot in terms of infrastructure but appealed to the CDF committee to improve boarding facilities in primary schools in order to improve performance.
“Many students who join secondary school from Mt. Elgon don’t perform well because of poor foundation in primary schools, so I appeal to the MP to put boarding facilities to schools bordering the forest,” Anne Boiyo headmistress Kibuk girls said.
They also mentioned bad reading culture among members of the community as one of the causes of poor performance in secondary schools and called on teachers to stock their libraries with books so as to improve English language among students.
Mt. Elgon CDF chairman Geoffrey Chemos who chaired the meeting reiterated that they are going to invest more than 60% of funds in education without interfering with the running of schools.
However he appealed to all teachers to try and change the attitude of parents towards education so that performance in Mt. Elgon can improve.
A cheque of Sh.10 million was presented to the head teachers of 27 schools as bursary for needy students

He is bright-eyed and looks more nervous than I am.He is dressed in army camouflage. From our correspondences, I knew ‘The Terminator’ was a huge man, perhaps over 6-foot-1 inch. But I am struck by how bony he is, with bony wrists. His firearm is partly rested on his lap and two knives dangle from his webbed belt. Beside him is a stone-faced, bare-chested man, in his early 30s, holding a semi-automatic rifle and a shotgun.........click here to read more.[NEW]
