SOUTH Mugirango MP Manson Nyamweya yesterday decried the low transition rate of girls from primary to secondary schools in his constituency.
Nyamweya said that the constituency has over 21, 000 girls in primary but those who make it to secondary are few. "Something needs to be done to safeguard the education of girls in this constituency. We need education stakeholders to put more effort in ensuring that more girls are enrolled into secondary school," Nyamweya said.
He decried the high number of rape and defilement cases in the district , especially those involving school girls saying these vices have greatly affected the education of the girl child.
