Parents in Mumias East Sub-county have been challenged to invest in the Education of their children in a bid to empower and improve their livelihoods.
East Wanga Assistant County Commissioner Penina Kuto said parents should gift their children with good education so as to uplift societal values.
“Let us give our children the education they deserve by providing a conducive environment for them to prosper in academics,” she said.
She said parents had the obligation of ensuring the children are educated and encouraged to nurture their talents in school for future opportunities.
“We must encourage our children to take their education seriously and give them the best opportunities whenever possible,” she said.
At the same time, the Administrator who was speaking yesterday in her office in Mumias town cautioned locals against selling illicit brew and called on Chiefs and their Assistants to liaise with the police to arrest the culprits.
“This menace must be stopped. We don’t want our youth to get wasted by consuming illicit brews. Chiefs and their assistants must apprehend those involved,” she said.
She advised those involved in the sale of drugs and illegal brews to look for alternative legal businesses to uplift their livelihoods.
“We have many genuine businesses that can be done,” she said.
She questioned why many people still involved themselves in illegal businesses that are always shut down by police.
