Voters should elect visionary leaders

By Lawrence Maina

Lariak Secondary school has launched a strategic plan to help in the development of the institution.

With all stakeholders including parents, teachers and students having been involved in the process of its creation, it was time to officially set the ball rolling.

The five year development strategy will see the day school transform to an academic giant by the end of the period if all goes as planned.
Speaking at the function, Mr. Omondi who represented the Laikipia West district education officer urged parents to work hand in hand with the staff to ensure that the goals and objectives as set out in the 2012-2017 strategic plan are achieved.

He also urged parents to be weary of politicizing the administration of schools to avert the downfall of the institutions.

Speaking at the same event, Dr. Michael Mugo urged parents to elect leaders based on their visions and not just because of their eloquence or big family names. Mugo particularly urged them to use the 2012 election to their benefit by electing leaders who have community issues at heart.

“Let us milk all politicians who come to us with bribes of money but instead vote in those leaders who are visionary and keen on the community development,” urged Dr. Mugo.

Meanwhile, the parents were urged to do their best in raising some sh. 600,000 for a funds drive dubbed Laikipia West schools development projects.

The funds drive which will be held at Sipili Secondary school in February 2012 targets to raise one million shillings to help in putting up development projects in the various secondary schools in the district.

Former cabinet minister Nicholas Biwott has been invited as the chief guest during the harambee according to Mr. Mugo who is co-coordinating the drive.
