The Cabinet Secretary for Defence, Hon. Aden Duale, on 20 July 2023 traversed the North Rift region inspecting the ongoing renovations of schools by KDF troops deployed under ‘Operation Maliza Uhalifu’.

The CS visited Chesitet Primary School in Baringo County and Kapedo Mixed Secondary School in Turkana County among the many schools earmarked for renovations in the six counties declared disturbed.

During his tour, CS Duale was briefed on the current security situation and the milestones that have so far been achieved in reinstating schools in the region. He lauded the Multi-agency team for their unremitting efforts in reforming the disturbed counties.

Hon. Duale noted the efforts in regaining normalcy and ending banditry that has taken root in the North Rift.

”Through the National Security Council, we have agreed and approved to support all projects in line with the Multi agency framework by building new schools, opening up roads, digging boreholes and water pans among others. All we need is your cooperation in enrolling more learners, the rest we will do our best to support you,” CS Duale said.

In his engagements with the schools’ management and pupils in the areas he visited, the CS commended learners for having continued streaming back to school assuring them of a positive and conducive learning environment that will help in mitigating conflict and fostering peace.

He promised to incorporate the Ministry of Education to ensure more teachers are posted to the region and reiterated the government’s commitment to building more schools as well as introducing boarding schools and also starting a school feeding program in the next phase of the project.

The CS was accompanied by a host of leaders among them Baringo Governor H.E Benjamin Cheboi, Turkana East MP Hon. Nicholas Ngikolong, Tiaty MP Hon. William Kamket, General Officer Commanding Western Command (GOC WestCom) Major General Jeff Nyagah among others.
