Bungoma county commissioner Samuel Kimiti has directed all assistant chiefs, security chairpersons and chiefs to ensure all learners who sat for their KCPE join secondary school.

Kimiti was addressing residents in Bumula during the commissioning of the 100 beds maternity wing by Governor Wycliffe Wangamati on Tuesday.

Kimiti urged parents to liaise with school heads of where their children were admitted.

“Parents should not stay at home with learners. They should liaise with school heads and find ways of raising the school  fees,” he said,

He said in some schools, parents are taking their cereals, firewood and molten bricks to cater for fees.

Kimiti urged education scholarship organisations to identify bright but needy students in their wards and help them join secondary schools.

“County governments and other education bursaries should fund bright but needy students, let's support our own children to ensure that in the future the region has all kinds of professionals,” Kimiti said.

He added that to obtain a 100 percent transition, local administrators have been asked to ensure that all 2021 KCPE students are in class.

“We want to support the government’s initiative in ensuring that all students who sat for KCPE join form one,” he said.

The administrator urged youths to avoid being used by politicians to cause chaos during campaigns saying Bungoma is one of the political hot spot counties
