Trans Nzoia County Governor George Natembeya has challenged parents to invest in their children’s education to secure them a better future. He said education will make children grow into responsible citizens thus contributing to the country’s social and economic growth. The governor said children were the country’s future leaders and needed to be given the necessary care and support to realize their full potential to the benefit of their families and the country at large.
The county boss urged parents to do all in their capacity to give their children a good education to enable them to overcome challenges that they might encounter in their journey through life. He noted that investing in education was the only legacy a parent could bequeath to their offspring and secure them a better future to take up the mantle in managing the affairs of their families, the counties and the country at large. The Governor made the call when he attended the burial of Evans Kilong’i Nate in Nabiswa Ward in Kiminini Sub County on Wednesday.
The Governor warned against the selling of medicines acquired using taxpayers’ money. ” Hatuwezi nunua dawa kwa pesa ya umma na wengine waziuze katika zahanati zao za kibinafsi. Mkipata dawa za aina hizo ambazo zimeandikwa juu yake KEMSA kuja pole pole mniambie “, said the no nonsense former Rift Valley Regional Commissioner. “We have procured enough Pharmaceutical and non-Pharmaceuticals, enough to last for the next three months. I will not accept to be told that any hospital in my jurisdiction has a shortage or no drugs at all”, he warned.
He evaluated several development projects that his members had undertaken and urged Trans Nzoia County residents not to be left behind in their quest to change their livelihoods. “We have put aside over Ksh. 120 Million in the Nawiri Fund to turn around the economy of this County. I urge all of you to take the money that attracts minimal interest instead of looking for white collar jobs where you put on suits and ties and earring peanuts”, he said, in reference to the youths. The County Governor also condole with the family of Bishop Nyongesa of Christ Power Ministry International in Nyasi Village following the death of his mother, Mama Anastasia Nangila.
The Governor pledged to prioritize the education of children from poor families whom he said his committee will cater for from form one to form four. He regretted that school heads were sending learners home for fees instead of allowing them to remain in school

“For the Parents who will let their children remain at home when others are in school, be aware that ‘ nikikuja kwenu itabidi mama au baba apitie kwa dirisha kwa sababu hii mambo ya kutokupeleka watoto shuleni ni desturi mbaya sana. He nevertheless challenged the learners to take their education seriously to become good citizens and a blessing to society at large.
