Kakamega County Commissioner Pauline Dola has said the transition from primary to secondary schools in the county has hit 94 per cent mark.
Dola stated that she has constituted multi-agency teams at the sub counties comprising the administrators, the youth officers and education officials to follow up and trace those who have not joined secondary schools.
The administrator stated that only those children who have attained the age of 18 will be allowed to join the Technical and Vocational Training institutions but all those underage should join the nearest day schools.
Meanwhile, a case whereby a twenty-year-old woman is accused of stabbing her boyfriend to death after suspecting him of cheating on her started yesterday before a Kakamega court.
The court heard that Linda Apoko accompanied by her friend Celine Machuma committed the offence on the night of the 24th August 2018 in Lukova Village of Malava Sub County.
Anne Omusembe, the sister to the deceased, told Justice Jesse Nyagah that the accused and the sister entered the house of Michael Omusembe at 10pm and jointly attacked him.
Another witness, John Masati, said he went to Omusembe’s house in the morning and found the body lying on the bed in a pool of blood.
“Immediately after the incident, the two disappeared from the village but we searched for them and after two days they were found at their aunt’s place in the neighbouring village,” he narrated.
Masati said the search party that consisted of the villagers then handed the suspects to Mukhonje police station.
The next hearing is set for 11th May 2020.
