Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua, on Saturday, May 20, surprised Limuru Girls High School students with Ksh1 million for their party.
Speaking during the Centenary Anniversary of the school domiciled in Kiambu County, Gachagua gave out the money indicating that it would help the students celebrate their academic excellence and discipline.
"Let me plan for the party of these girls so that they can eat what they want," Gachagua stated.
"So let me bring that Ksh1 million for the students' bash and give it to the Chief Principal and leave other major issues for President Ruto to address," Gachagua added.
Gachagua further lauded Limuru Girls' Chief Principal, indicating that her journey to success signified determination and hard work.
On the other hand, President William Ruto promised to deliver another bus to the school . The Head of State noted that the school's population had increased significantly, prompting his decision to add another bus.
"I have realised that the number of students has increased they were 1,400 right now, they are over 2,000. So I will look for another bus next week because two buses for over 2,000 students are insufficient," Ruto promised.
At the same time, Ruto pledged to help Limuru Girls construct a new administration valued at over Ksh100 million. To address congestion in the school, the Head of State also pledged to support Limuru Girls to get seven more classrooms.
Deploying more teachers and restocking other learning materials also featured in Ruto's promises to Limuru Girls High School.
The Head of State insisted that the academic milestone achieved by the school was worth celebrating. He argued that the institution had posted stellar results consistently and raised some top leaders in the country.
Speaking during the same event, Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu lauded President Ruto for launching the new university funding model.
He insisted that students would benefit and encourage high-to-university transition.
