Senator Susan Kihika has today praised teachers for their unity and the good work they are doing for the county.
Senator Kihika was speaking in Wendo Village in Njoro where she was attending the burial of the late Joseph Kamau Njenga. Until his death, Joseph Kamau was a teacher at St. John’s primary school at KITI in Nakuru.
“Am always impressed by the way teachers support each other. Am really happy for the way you have supported the family of your late colleague at this hour of need,” said the senator.
At the same time, she has challenged parents to watch over their children this holiday season.
“We’ve had some unfortunate cases of student pregnancies, especially during the exam season. Now that the children are home for the holiday season, I ask the parents to really watch over their children, talk to them and counsel them to prevent the recurrence of such unfortunate cases,” she said.
Senator Kihika also voiced her concerns over the ongoing placement in form one. She said it was a matter of concern to see many pupils who had performed well miss places at their schools of choice.
Senator Kihika described the late Kamau as a family man who dedicated his life to the happiness and prosperity of his family adding that his wisdom and guidance would be missed by all who knew him.
As a career teacher, the late was eulogized as someone who was hardworking and who positively influenced the lives of many who he guided through school.
