Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka now says that the One Kenya Alliance (OKA) will introduce free secondary education if it clinches the presidency at the August general elections.
Speaking in Machakos on Saturday, Musyoka stated that as a former Minister of Education during retired president Mwai Kibaki’s stint, he understands the importance of making education free and accessible for all Kenyans.
“I once was Minister for Education, we advised Mzee Kibaki to introduce free and compulsory primary education. As OKA we will deliver free secondary education,” Musyoka said.
The former Vice President continued on to say that as a parent he understands the hardships that parental figures go through when seeking funds to educate their children.
Business disruption owing to COVID-19, Musyoka stated, has not made their struggles any easier.
“We understand the hardships that parents go through and we want to lessen the load for them by introducing free secondary education,” he added.
Musyoka similarly took a swipe at political aspirants giving enormous handouts to supporters during the elections season, citing that most of the funds are obtained illegally and that Kenya should not condone corruption.
He consequently asked Machakos residents to back him in the race to State House.
