The Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) chair for Nandi County branch Mr. Stephen Misoi has urged the national government to consider the increase of co-curricular activities funds so as to assist the young generation to develop their talents. He was speaking during a private primary schools competitions at Chebisaas girls high school grounds in Aldai constituency, with schools drawn from Nandi and Uasin Gishu Counties.

Misoi said that Nandi is well known for athletics and that is why they have continued to produce international athletes continuously from the former Olympic champion Kipchoge Keino to the current crop like Eliud Kipchoge.

He said as teachers, they’ve discovered that there are so many talents among the students which haven’t been unravelled and put to good use and the only way to identify is availing enough room, enough facilities so that they can display what they have.

He revealed that private schools have been doing well academically thus called upon the government to continue supporting them.
