Governors to spend 3.75milion on 'devolution course' on school children

The Council of Governors plans to spend Ksh3.75 million on children in preparations of the 4th Annual Devolution Conference, 2017

 

Four children aged between 10 and 18, One of which would be living with disability from each county are expected to benefit from the programme.

The programme is part of preparations of the 4th Annual Devolution Conference, 2017 to be held on March 6-9 at the Kenya Wildlife Service Training Institute, Nakuru County.

The devolution class for children would be held on February 27 and 28 before the devolution conference.

This year’s conference will focus on education, health, agriculture, infrastructure, energy, sports, arts, talents and culture, which affect children’s’ day-to-day life.

“The 2017 Annual Children’s Conference is organised to give the girls and boys of Kenya an opportunity to tell their story of devolution,” the concept paper reads as reported by a local daily.

According to the concept note available at the council of governors website one of the objective of this year’s conference is to mobilize all Kenyans including but not limited to those in business, academia, artists, religious and civil society actors that will safeguard, entrench and sustain devolution as the vehicle for inclusive growth process for the nation.

The conference hopes to also celebrate the successes of devolution and interact with officials on the children’s agenda.

A number of children based organization like Unicef Children have been invited.

The children will be picked by a panel comprised of members of the Kenya Secondary Heads Association and Kenya Primary School Heads Association.

This won’t be the first time however children are being ‘indoctrinated’ about government policies, those old enough would remember being taught about Kanu’s manifesto’s President Moi ideology and the government in nineties.

The president, the party and its cockerel, were found in churches, at schools, on sports grounds, on burial grounds, everywhere.

Songs extolling the virtues of the Moi and his achievements forever rang in the air.

Chinese too which the Jubilee government recently ‘borrowed’ their manifesto have perfected the art for centuries and school going children are taught about the country’s communist party, Its ideology and above all how to obey the state.
