Speaking on Tuesday, the President also directed the ministries to reinstate sponsorship of schools by churches.

He directed the Principal Secretary, Nicholas Muraguri, to convene a meeting with the Education Ministry on Wednesday to initiate restoration of church-owned land.

“There are many schools built and sponsored by Churches. Restore that sponsorship. I have also given one week to restore all Church-owned land and schools to their rightful owners,” said the President.

He stated that he was giving the directive on Church schools to honour the memory of the late Archbishop who passed away on November 4th after a short illness.

The President also told the congregation that the Government will start to engage closely with religious organisations to enforce better morality among school children.

Discipline in high school

He noted that the level of indiscipline among school children points to the fact that there was something missing in their lives.
