Kidero to repossess grabbed public school land

Nairobi Governor Dr Evans Kidero has promised to repossess all grabbed land that had been originally allocated for public primary schools.

Roysambu MP Waihenya Ndirangu said that despite having a population of 58,000 Githurai Ward had no public utility spaces on which to build schools, a situation replicated in many areas in Nairobi.

Dr Kidero further said that he expects an implementable report on how the county will improve public primary standards and performance by March 4.

He added that public primary schools performance in the county will be one of the key performance indicators during his tenure.

As many as 70,000 children (20 per cent) aged between 5-14 are out of the school system in the county despite the free primary education.
