Babu Owino at Utawala Academy

Embakasi East Member of Parliament Babu Owino has renovated Utawala Academy, one of the public primary schools in his constituency, as a reward for exemplary performance in the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education examinations.

The lawmaker showed photos of the school that received a facelift for all its 31 classrooms on his Twitter page.

“Renovation of Utawala Academy, a public primary school is done and dusted. We fixed Modern Tiles, new ceiling boards, roofing, painting and new window glasses fixed in 31 rooms. What you do makes a difference and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make,” Babu wrote.

In the 2021 KCPE, Utawala Academy was among the top school in Nairobi county, which Babu Owino attributed to efforts by students, himself, the school’s management, and parents.


Below are photos of the renovated primary school:
