Lonyangapuo worried about adults salivating for children's food

West Pokot Governor John Lonyangapuo

West Pokot Governor John Lonyangapuo has called out adults who are eyeing school children's food in his county.

Lonyangapuo noted that school children from West Pokot would not starve due to a few people as he warned those salivating on the Children’s porridge.

He further warned against the encroaching dry season in West Pokot which is likely to affect the livelihood of students.

The West Pokot governor also cautioned the county officials against irregular issuing of the packets in different schools.

Fighting malnutrition  

Speaking during the distribution of fortified porridge for 1,106 Early Childhood centres across the county which will benefit 77, 972 pupils, the governor insisted on the nutritional value of porridge to the ECD children.

The porridge has various nutritional components aimed at fighting malnutrition among school-going children,” Lonyangapuo stated.

The first years of a child’s life set stage for all future growth. Furthermore, good nutrition plays a crucial role during the formative years when there’s rapid brain development,” he added.

Governor's jokes

Lonyangapuo grabbed media headlines over hilarious remarks he made during a public address which thrust him into the social media limelight.

The governor, in a video that went viral, described one of the county’s former MCA aspirants as “Kijana fupi, amenona, round; huwezi jua tumbo ni wapi, mgongo ni wapi.

Those words took the country, especially the online space, by storm and had Kenyans choking with laughter for weeks thereafter.

So funny were those words that when President Uhuru Kenyatta ran into Governor Lonyangapuo on Monday after condoling with the family of former president Daniel Arap Moi following the loss of one of his sons, even the Head of State chimed in and burst into loud laughter.
