Laikipia County Government send relief food to schools
By Governor’s Press Service
Governor Joshua Irungu today flagged off a consignment of 1,500 bags of maize for distributions in primary schools in all the 15 wards.
Speaking during the ceremony, the Governor said pupils in schools are the most affected as there is no food at home or in schools. He added that the programme targets all the schools, including those listed in the relief programme of the national government.
According to the Governor, schools listed for the relief programme by the national government have not received any supply this year. He said the county government has intervened after consultation with the county assembly.
The governor appealed to Laikipians to monitor the distribution and ensure that no maize is diverted to benefit individuals, but delivered to the intended schools.
He also announced that in this financial year, his government will concentrate more on provisions of water, such as drilling of boreholes, dams and rehabilitating the existing ones. The plan will mitigate the impact of the drought in the county.
This is the second consignment in less than three months. In December 2014, the Governor flagged off a similar consignment for the people facing starvation in the county.
Present during the ceremony were the Speaker of the County Assembly Hon Patrick Mariru, MCAs, members of the public and county government staff.

Bursary fund restores hope for parents
By Governor’s Press Service
The Laikipia County Government Bursary Fund has come as a relief to parents overburdened by the rising cost of living compounded with high fees charged in schools.
Launching the Kshs. 45M bursary in Nyahururu Stadium on Saturday, February 21, Governor Joshua Irungu told the leaders, principals, parents and students that the initiative was just the start of more yet to come.
He appealed to the bursary committee members to ensure equity, transparency and accountability, and that they should not, in any way, discriminate a child on the basis of thnicity, religion or other reasons.
The Governor said the money, set aside from the 2014 / 2015 financial year, is enough to help more than 9,000 needy students
The fund is expected to increase in the 2015/2016 county budget. This will mean that more students, including those in universities and middle colleges will benefit.
Governor Irungu has done a lot to improve standard of education in the county. He sponsored head-teachers for a benchmarking trip to Kirinyaga in 2013. He has also visited all the schools in the county, to familiarise himself.
Students’ motivation has also been his routine engagement, the Governors has distributed balls, rubber shoes and other goods in some of the county schools, in addition to success cards for every KCPE and KSCE candidates in 2013 and 2014.
Mentorship programme is also another line the Governor has been involved in, without mentioning learning materials provided and classrooms built by the county government. He has appealed to professional Laikipians to adopt at least one school for mentorship.
The Governor has spent over Kshs.3M from his salary, to pay fees for the needy students in the county. He is not only committed to improve the standards of education in the county, but to make Laikipia a close competitor to Kirinyaga County, in the national exams.
Present during the launch were the Speaker of the county assembly Hon Patrick Mariru, Members of the County Assembly, Laikipia university students from all the universities and technical training institutes.
The bursary fund is an achievement, and it symbolises the unity for the county government, leaders and the people of Laikipia. One Chinese leader Mao-Tse-Tung said: “Where there is distrust, there is no productivity, and where there is no productivity, there is no development.”
This is true in counties where leaders are divided, and the people have no faith in their leaders. Much time is spent on politics and fighting for power and supremacy at the expenses of development. It is, therefore, important to recognise that the leaders and people of Laikipia are united, and the county will never be like the ones ever in the news for bad reasons.
HEKO VIONGOZI NA WATU WA LAIKIPIA. GOD BLESSES LAIKIPIA.
