Kenya: Uhuru Opposed to Free Primary Education - Nyong'o

CORD has said Jubilee's Uhuru Kenyatta and former President Moi are some of the leaders who were opposed to free primary education.

During campaigns in Nyandarua, the coalition claimed the two dismissed the programme saying the country cannot afford free education due to lack of funds.

ODM secretary general Anyang Nyong'o said the Narc government proved them wrong and questioned whether Uhuru can deliver his promises if elected.

Speaking in Magumu, Githioro, Njabini, Engineer and Kipipiri trading centers, Nyong'o said Cord will offer free primary and secondary education. The minister was accompanied by Kipipiri constituency ODM candidate John Njenga.
