The government should review laptops project

While I thank President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Samoei Ruto for promising laptops for junior school pupils, I think this should have been left as a Vision 2030 programme.

Most of the children targeted are living below the poverty line and it is an insanity to see a poor, hungry, bear foot child going to school carrying a laptop.

Better free school uniforms, school feeding programmes or free boarding for children from poor families. Let us cut our coat according to our size by solving the problems pupils are facing now.
