Rabai Member of Parliament Kamoti Mwamkale has urged the Ministry of Education to impose stern action on parents who fail to take their children to school.
The MP spoke at Maji Mabovu primary school in Ruruma, Kilifi County, during a hand over of a modern classroom block.
The pupils have been learning in mud thatched classrooms which has affected their performance over the years.
Poor infrastructure has been a great impediment to academic performance of pupils’ in Rabai Constituency with many schools operating in dilapidated structures as classrooms, while others are forced to learn under trees.
Maji Mabovu Primary School in Ruruma, Rabai constituency, started operations 10 years ago in mud thatched classrooms but today, courtesy of a humanitarian organization, the school is ushering in five classrooms.
The pupils could not hide their joy as it was a dream come true with the management saying there is renewed energy and motivation among the learners.
Mwamkale however says attendance still remains low and warned parents who are disrupting their children’s education through early marriages will face the law.
