Kamagut Primary School is getting a makeover thanks to a Sh190 million grant.
This comes following Monday’s trip to the school by President William Ruto, who pursued his nursery education there.
According to the State House, new junior and senior schools will be part of the improvements.
The Sh190 million will be funded by the Mpesa Foundation and the government.
Together with First Lady Mama Rachel Ruto, Education PS Belio Kipsang, and MPesa Foundation trustee Michael Joseph, Ruto took a visit to the school.
President Ruto said that he was delighted to return to the school, where he graduated from in 1982 when he did his Certificate of Primary Education (CPE) and met former classmates and stakeholders.
The head of state also reunited with his former teachers including Mr Ouma, whom Ruto described as very tough.
“Kwanza wewe Ouma ulituumiza sana, ulituchapa ayaya. Huyo mwalimu huyo…ata nimeskia Bwana Nyutu (Chairperson of the Senate Education Committee) atampatia kitu kwa sababu ya kutunyorosha,” Ruto quipped.
President Ruto said he had taken it upon himself to revamp the school with the help of other donors and well wishers such as Safaricom Foundation and M-PESA .
Recalling his primary school days, he praised the school’s chairman for being the first person from the school to be admitted to university.
