Narok County government has spent more than Sh.2 billion in the last seven years on revamping education sector in the area.
Speaking at Narosoora in Maji Moto ward, Narok south sub county on Tuesday, area governor, Samuel Tunai said a huge chunk of the money had been used in improving the general infrastructure in over 300 schools.
“We have constructed classes and dormitories in over 300 schools. In addition, Sh.30 million has been spent on bursaries for students in the last financial year, Sh.20 million on buying books, while over Sh.100 million had been used in constructing six technical training institutions in the county,” he added.
On agriculture, the governor said the county economy thrives on the sector, adding his government would build an economic block with the neighboring counties and international community in order for residents to broaden the market for their produce.
“Most of the communities in Narok depend on farming and we will ensure we protect farmers against any form of exploitation,” he added.
