Governor Lee visits Njoro polytechnic

Governor Lee Kinyanjui today visited Njoro polytechnic in Njoro Sub-County where he inspected classrooms and a new building that is under construction.

He said it is unfortunate that there are people who have grabbed part of the public land, inhibiting the expansion of the polytechnic.

He directed County surveyors to demarcate the land as soon as possible, before the process of reclaiming the grabbed land begins.

The County Government through the department of Education, ICT & e-government will soon install Wi-Fi at the polytechnic to facilitate access to internet to the students and entire neighbourhood.

Governor Lee was accompanied by Njoro MP Charity Kathambi, Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries CECM Dr. Immaculate Maina, Early Childhood Education and Vocational Training CO Jamleck Maina, ICT & e-Government CO Peter Mwaura and other County officials.
