Pupils in Thika Public Schools to be Served Boiled Eggs in New Programme

By Allan Tawai

Thika Member of Parliament Mr. Patrick Wainaina has pledged to help improve deteriorating education standard in his constituency.

Starting next Monday, all pupils in public primary schools in his Thika Town constituency will have a plus on their food menu as they will be served eggs.

The programme, funded by local MP Patrick Wainaina, is christened “Egg Monday”. This program is set to see to it that each pupil enjoy a boiled egg every Monday morning. Mr. Wainaina said the programme was aimed at improving the general health of pupils and also class attendance in schools.

The legislator added that the programme is going to be used as a source of income by parents as they would be encouraged to keep poultry in order to supply eggs to schools.

According to the legislator, parents would benefit two-fold by getting an opportunity to sell eggs to schools and some of them even being employed to prepare meals for the pupils.

“It is my appeal to parents to start rearing chickens and become suppliers of eggs,” said Wainaina.

The Member of Parliament added that plans are underway for a programme to help improve the falling education standards in Thika constituency, which is set be launched soon.

The Sun is now Setting on your Chance to be Part of Amani Ridge the Place of Peace

Published

on

With only 26 plots measuring 1/4 acres remaining, the window to own a plot of land at Amani Ridge the Place of Peace is now closing. As this is happening, the cost of these plots is now set to move up by 20%.

Here is the good news though; you still have a chance to secure your property before this change takes effect.

As this window slowly closes, the value additions are tripling as we are now headed to start internal roads murruming before we finally lay cabro on the same streets. On the other hand, the Kenya Power contract to lay underground power is right on the heels.

At the same time, the Razor Wire installation on Wall of Happiness and Wall not Knowledge (1.4Km in length) is also set to start next week.

Meanwhile, we are heartily celebrating the completion of the four walls surrounding this top gated community in Kiambu (Wall of Peace, Wall of Wisdom, Wall of Happiness and Wall of Knowledge).

As we share this update, the laying of paving blocks (cabro) on a one acre gate-area is ongoing as you see on the accompanying photo.

This cabro works on the estate’s driveway has been designed to give all families and visitors coming into this gated community an inviting welcome.

The Children’ Play Park along Mwangaza Avenue was also designed with children that are brought up in this gated community in mind.

This project’s Care Taker, Mr. Ondiek and his team have a brief to make sure that the grass is well manicured to make this space as safe as possible for children.

Why not secure a site visit and invest in your children future?

VIDEO: CNN’s Anderson Cooper is so tickled by Kenyan Comic Elsa Majimbo

Published

American television journalist and primary anchor of the CNN news broadcast Anderson Cooper 360°, struggled to contain himself from breaking into tears of laughter during an interview with Kenyan comic Elsa Majimbo.

The two spoke for 15 minutes during his Full Circle show, with Elsa narrating the story of her meteoric rise to global stardom.

“It actually started out of pure boredom due to the lockdown. Then people started messaging me and telling me how much they enjoyed and related to my stories. That’s when I realised that I was on to something,” she revealed.

She further detailed that her content was derived from what she experiences on an everyday basis.

By this point, Cooper was in stitches as he aired some of her videos that went viral around the world.

It hasn’t been smooth sailing for the 19-year-old, as she took a pensive mood while trying to explain her Kenyan fanbase.

“It’s funny that my comedy has garnered more fans outside my own country. The comedy scene here is quite different with most of the jokes in Swahili and its about tribes [stereotypes],” she remarked.

“That’s not my comedy, mine is all about what’s happening in the world,” she added.

“So, you mean you don’t have a ‘2 Kikuyus walk into a bar’ kind of joke?” Cooper asked, leaving the Kenyan teenager in laughter.

She explained that her content was mostly picked up from American and European cultures.

During the candid interview, she alluded to an impression that most Kenyans did not find her funny, ‘I am funny everywhere else except Kenya’ she stated in response to Cooper’s compliment on her content resonating with audiences around the world.

The CCN anchor was visibly in awe of the talented teen and went on to encourage her to aim towards making an appearance at the New York Comedy Club.

“You brought me a lot of happiness and joy during this difficult period and I really appreciate you. Keep doing what you are doing,” he said.

The comic’s story is one of success in an unlikely period. She has not only grown her fanbase across the world, but also was recently got signed up by Rihanna’s fashion line Fenty for a campaign.

She stated she to idolises global comic superstars Dave Chappelle and Kevin Hart, as she works her way up to having a stand-up comedy show of her own in future.

Her funny videos on quarantine life have been shared multiple times by everyday people as well as global superstars, turning her into a phenomenon in just under 6 months.

“I realised that formal education is not my beginning and end, as we have been drilled. I have so much to offer and I am so happy doing what I do,” she stated.
