Parents Advised To Keep Close Eye On Their Children During This Short Break

Parents have been urged to protect their children’s education during the election campaign.

Learners are currently on a ten-day short vacation until August 11, 2022, to allow for the general election to be held.

“Parents pay attention to your children’s education, especially the girl child, see to it that the girl child education is not cut short as a result of teenage pregnancy,” Kwale MP Benjamin Tayari said.

He spoke on Wednesday at the CDF project’s commissioning of 300 schools.

During this political period, the legislator urged students to listen to their teachers and parents.

He also asked parents to stay close to their children to ensure their safety during this brief vacation.

The MP urged parents in Kwale County to prioritize girl child education, claiming that most parents in the county do not prioritize their daughters’ education.

“I am ready to support you in all endeavors to see that future MPs, women Representatives, and the president comes from this county,” he added

Tayari asked underprivileged parents to apply for bursaries at county offices to ensure smooth learning operations.
