He went on to say that the multi-agency team would collaborate closely with the boards of directors of the respective schools to ensure the program’s smooth implementation.

Osewe went on to say that the classrooms, which were expected to cost Sh788, 000 per class, would be built by local contractors operating near the schools, with funds remitted directly to them at the sub-county level.
The Director explained that the move was intended to empower locals and ensure that their skilled labour was utilized, as well as to boost economic growth at the grassroots level.
