Imran Okoth's Impressive Projects Get Kenyans Talking

  • Kibra Member of Parliament Bernard Imran Okoth excited a section of Kenyans as he unveiled a new project, barely a week after the completed refurbishment of Toi Primary School left Kenyans talking.

    Okoth on Friday, January 17, unveiled an ablution block at Moi Girls High School which includes 28 units and two cubicles.

    "Today, we officially handed over an ablution block at Moi Girls School Nairobi," the lawmaker shared on Twitter.

    In the heat of campaigns for the Kibra by-election in 2019, Imran had promised residents that if elected, he would further his late brother Ken Okoth's legacy of development.

    "How long has this guy been in office and yet he's already doing so much, a lot more than some wannabes have promised to do in the last eight years. Kudos. This is the one vote I don't regret casting," wrote one user in response to Imran.

    "Very encouraging to see that there are still good things happening...Hongera (Kudos)," posted another.

    "Walking into development without hesitation. Keep up the spirit and initiate more," another user praised.

    Ken Okoth, who succumbed to Cancer, had won Kenyans' hearts with his impressive track record of undertaking meaningful projects.

    Ken was particularly praised for his focus on education with a number of schools built and others renovated during his time in office, in addition to the implementation of a transparent policy on issuance of bursaries for needy students.

    Following a similar path, Imran has initiated various projects in the education sector since his election on November 8, 2019.

    Other than the completed refurbishment of Toi Primary, Imran has earned plaudits for keeping the Kibra Scholarship Fund started by his brother alive.

    Students from Kibra who did well in their 2019 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) recently underwent interviews with successful applicants assured of having their secondary school fees and expenses covered.

    "Ronald Ouma who scored 400 marks in the 2019 KCPE exam was interviewed for the Kibra NG-CDF Scholarship Fund. He was successful and will be joining Maranda High School as a beneficiary of the fund," Okoth posted on Friday, January 10, after the student's plight was highlighted by Citizen TV.
