The PS said the first project he commissioned in the sub county at St. Peters Kotieno Secondary school, which was the second project to be launched in the whole country, was done and completed in record time by a youth.
“Today I have commissioned another CBC classroom also done by a relatively youthful contractor,” he said when he addressed students, teacher and government officers in Agoro Sare high after commissioning two CBC classrooms in the school.
During the award of tenders, companies, partnerships and sole proprietorships from the locals among them youth and women groups won the tenders to construct 24 classrooms distributed in 23 schools in the first phase of the programme

The PS said the government is constructing 250 classrooms during the first phase in Homa Bay County. The classrooms, estimated to be 10,000 classrooms countrywide, were meant to create space for junior secondary in the year 2023.
