Lugari MP, Ayub Savula, has this morning joined a prayer service convened at Mukhalanya Primary School in Matete Ward, Lugari, where more than 200 pupils learn under trees.
The service was organized by St. Charles Lwanga Catholic Church as a prayer mass for students of St. Charles Lwanga Secondary School.
West FM recently reported that at least 200 pupils in Grades Four, Five and Six are learning under trees after their dilapidated classrooms collapsed.
A total of five classrooms and the administration block have been condemned by the public health authority in the area, putting the future of over 1,000 pupils at stake.
A good number of schools in the constituency still lie in a sorry state.
Savula, who recently joined forces as running mate for Kakamega gubernatorial aspirant Fernandes Barasa, addressed residents who flocked the school, urging them to support his bid.
“We commit to making agriculture more attractive and viable employment for the youth. We will come up with modalities of facilitating the community with free fertilizer and other farm inputs to improve food security. Thank Mukhalanya for your support,” he wrote on his Twitter page.
