We are bold in presenting our news as we move to all Maa counties across the country.

Deputy President William Ruto on Friday announced that from next financial year technical education lecturers will have their own new scheme of service.

DP William Ruto, governor Joseph Lenku, Edna Lenku and DG Martin Moshisho on May 18.

Ruto said as part of Jubilee government’s positivity in profiling technical education the new scheme of service will provide for lecturers’ career development.

“Lecturers in technical training colleges were put together with teachers in primary and secondary schools in teachers’ service commission, and that made their career progression a challenge and their promotion problematic,” said Ruto.

The Deputy President was speaking at Masai Technical Training Institute during its third graduation when he also said technical education is more expensive than formal education.

One thousand two hundred grandaunts were awarded diplomas and certificates in various technical courses offered in the institution. Kajiado governor Joseph Lenku hosted the DP in the occasion that was attended by MPs Kanchory Memusi (Kajiado Central), Peris Tobiko (Kajiado East) and county women Janet Teyiaa.

“This has been our challenge from when we took over leadership in 2013. I have already given instruction to the relevant state department responsible for technical education, and in the next one month or two we should be able to have new fees structure for technical students in institutes and colleges,” said Ruto.

Ruto said the fees will be reduced by between 30 per cent and 50 per cent so that students can have greater access to technical education.

He appealed to governors in the county to redirect the money that used to go in to bursaries for students in secondary schools to students in technical institutes.

“The government is now catering for students in secondary schools and what the governors were giving out to students in those institutions should be redirected to technical colleges,” said Ruto.

The deputy president said the government has set aside Sh3 billion for road network in Kiserian and Ongata Rongai that will cover 65 km.

He also said the government has given out a contract for the construction of Ngong/Kiserian/Isinya road and work is expected to start “soon”.

Plans, he said are underway to build a road connecting Kajiado with Narok from Ngong to Suswa.

Ruto said the institute will be assisted with Sh20 million for renovation and roofing of some of the dilapidated structures.
