Monday September 23, 2019-Nominated Senator, Millicent Omanga, has blamed President Uhuru Kenyatta’s government over the collapse of a school building in Dagoretti on Monday.
According to Omanga, government’s failure had led to the collapse of a two-storey building at Precious Talent School in, Ngando Ward, Dagoretti South Constituency.
“It is a sad day in Nairobi, and we are supposed to blame our government. The government has left schools to citizens to build and manage schools on their own,” Omanga stated.
“Government departments in charge of ensuring safety in buildings are taking bribes so as to approve substandard buildings. It has failed to put up standard measures for private schools,” Omanga added.
The Jubilee Senator further stated that the government had neglected Ngando ward claiming that the roads were impassable and there was no security, not even a police station.
“The whole of Ngando area does not have a public school, so all the children here have to come to this school. We need a public school here,” she said.
Dagoretti MP, John Kiarie, also directed his blames to the government for its failure to construct a public school in Ngando Ward.
Seven students have died from the calamity with 57 casualties undergoing treatment at Kenyatta National Hospital.
