Kenya: Education Key, Says Ntimama

HERITAGE minister William ole Ntimama has urged youth in the Narok County to shun anti social behaviours and instead empower themselves through education.

Ntimama said youth should take advantage of education opportunities which offered training from any level.

He made the remarks yesterday at Maasai Girls High school after he commissioned a dormitory built through Narok North CDF.

Ntimama was accompanied by DEO Kuyo ole Saionah and principal Ann Nyabuto.

The former Narok North M said young graduates should not lament about lack of employment and instead create jobs.

He said students who fail to make it to university s can still pursue their dream careers in technical colleges.

"Please do not despair when you get whatever grade. Join any accredited college and pursue your career," said Ntimama.

The minister told teachers to provide quality education and prepare students well for national exams.

He praised the school for promoting education of girls in the region.

Ntimama asked the residents to support his re-election for the Narok North seat. "I fought for the interests of Maasai in the entire region, so I can now ask for your support," said Ntimama.
