Residents of Nabing’eng’e village in Tongaren Sub County have been assured of getting clean water for consumption after water Cabinet secretary Eugene Wamalwa said the Lake Victoria North water services board will be touring the region to conduct a feasibility study on Nabing’eng’e dam.
Speaking after officially opening a library and two classrooms funded by the ministry of education, projects identified by Bungoma County women representative Dr. Reginalda Wanyonyi, Eugene said the dam is an asset to the community and after the study, the school and members of the community will be able to get water.
He congratulated the school for having produced two A- grades in last year’s KCSE results saying with such marvellous results the students need to get water supply easily so as not to waste a lot of time having to travel to far places to fetch water for consumption.
The water cabinet secretary further pledged to buy the school a one-acre piece of land for expansion saying the aspirations of separating the boys from girls sometime in future should be achieved so as to ensure the children’s education is well catered for.
He further promised to extend their need for a bus to the deputy president William Samoei Ruto saying with such a good performance the school needs to be crowned so as to propel its might further and have many students join universities.
Bungoma County governor Kenneth Lusaka also pledged to buy the school a one-acre piece of land for expansion saying he will also be close to the school to spur more development projects.
However, he challenged the students to work hard in their studies saying many job qualifications nowadays are being pegged on the level of education for instance being a governor he said one needs to have a degree.
His sentiments were echoed by Bungoma County women representative Dr. Reginalda Wanyonyi who said education is the greatest equalizer in the society and it’s only through education that they will be able to achieve their future dreams.
She added that through the ministry of education fund at least two each ward in Bungoma County has been able to benefit from an infrastructural project and called upon residents of Bungoma County to support her re-election bid so as to be able to develop more.
Dr. Reginalda thanked residents of Bungoma County for having registered in large numbers during the voter registration exercise saying they should also come out in large numbers to vote also during the August 8th polls.
