Construction of phase two CBC classrooms in Murang’a County has been completed.
County Director of Education Ann Kiilu on Tuesday told KNA that contractors who were awarded tenders have completed constructing 112 classrooms which were allocated to be built in various schools in Murang’a.
She noted the county committee which was in charge of the works has handed over most of the classrooms saying only few are yet to be handed over to the schools’ management.
The 112 classrooms were distributed to 68 schools in the county with some institutions getting two classrooms while others got one.
Kiilu lauded the contractors for delivering the works on the stipulated time observing that phase two was not marred by many challenges like phase one, where contractors avoided to tender for the construction of the classrooms.
“By election time, most of the classrooms were completed. This time we did not experience challenges like phase one,” she stated.
Phase one, Kiiilu said many of local contractors shied off from tendering for the workers.
“In second phase, we involved school principals to supervise the work and that’s why we were able to deliver the work on time,” she added.
The director said particulars of the contractors who were engaged in the completed works have been forwarded to headquarters for payments.
The Ministry of Education had slated August 9 this year as the deadline to complete construction of phase two classrooms.
Phase One, Murang’a County was allocated 216 classrooms which were completed despite many challenges which rocked the works.
The new classrooms are earmarked to host junior secondary schools which will commence in January next year.
