Kibra MP-elect Imran Okoth has made a vow to his constituents that he aims to fulfill his campaign promises within his first 100 days in office.
Although he is yet to be sworn in, Imran took time on Tuesday to inspect the ongoing construction of Kibera Secondary School, a project started by his late brother and former Kibra MP Ken Okoth.
Imran revealed his 100-day goal through a Twitter post where he vowed to fulfill his campaign promise of commissioning the school within the next 100 days.
“One key promise was to handover Kibra Secondary School within my first 100 days in office. I inspected the ongoing works earlier today to ensure that I meet the target,” he said.
The late Ken Okoth was known for his focus on improving the quality of education for Kibra residents and his brothers looks set to follow in his footsteps.
Under the 5-year strategic plan dubbed ‘Vision Elimu Kwanza’, Ken Okoth was able to equip Shadrack Kimalel Mixed Secondary School with a two-storey block made up of 9 classrooms, a computer lab, offices for heads of departments, washrooms and a store.
The former MP also oversaw the rehabilitation of several schools in his constituency, including Joseph Kang’ethe, Ayany and Kibera Primary School. In 2017 he also teamed up with celebrated media personality Jeff Koinange for the construction of the modern Mbagathi Girls High School where the school’s library was named after the Citizen TV presenter.
