Needy students at Ngala Secondary School for the deaf on the outskirts of Nakuru Town have a reason to smile after former Nacada boss John Mututho committed to ensuring a solar power system is installed at the school.
Mututho who was a chief guest at the school over the weekend during a sensitization forum for the students on matters drugs and substance abuse made the commitment following Principal’s request.
The Principal Ms Pauline Kimani had decried the poor state of the school especially when the electrical power goes off.
She stated that the students are forced to sleep early whenever the power goes off making it difficult to compete with the rest of the students across the country.
Mututho, however, stated that he will ensure the school is installed with solar power that will help in addressing the challenge as well as ensure security in the special needs school.
“I want to take a commitment to do it within two months and ensure the school is installed with solar power. This will also boost the security of the school,” said Mututho.
Mututho also calling on other well-wishers to come on board and ensure the school is well equipped. He challenged the education stakeholders to have special needy schools at heart in developing policies for the sector.
“It could be expensive but it is the way to go. We all have a role to play in shaping the lives of these needy students. Let us visit the school and see what we can do,” said Mututho.
The former Nacada boss was accompanied by Sergeant Moses Kimenchu-an Administration Police officer who has been on the forefront in rescuing drug addicts across the country.
