Governor Fahim Twaha has said that his administration is laying a foundation for national universities and colleges to establish constituent campuses in Lamu County.
He said the County has engaged top universities and colleges to establish satellite campuses that will cater for the steady stream of top students from Lamu County secondary schools.
“These Campuses will ensure that Lamu County students access quality tertiary education close from home and compliment our ambition for access for quality education for all.It will also help locals get business through renting hostels to students,” he added.
He was speaking at a Prize Giving Ceremony held at Witu Mjini Secondary School earlier today joined by 1000 parents, students and teachers.
Over 200 students, past 2020 and 2021 KCSE exams students, continuing students and teachers who performed well in their studies and subjects received gifts ranging from bicycles, suitcases, revision books and learning materials.
Governor Fahim Twaha attributed incredible performances in schools partly to the County’s education financing programs.
