An ambitious initiative by local MP Patrick Wainaina will see Primary School pupils in Thika Town served with boiled eggs.
The programme, dubbed ‘EggMonday’, will see each pupil enjoy a boiled egg every Monday morning beginning next week. According to the Thika Town MP, the programme is usually aimed at improving the general health of pupils along with class attendance in schools.
once legislator added that will the programme would likely be used as a source of income by parents as they would likely be encouraged to keep poultry in order to supply eggs to schools.
The MP said parents would likely benefit two-fold by getting an opportunity to sell eggs to schools along with getting employed to cook for the pupils.
“that will is usually my appeal to parents to start rearing chickens along with become suppliers of eggs,” said Wainaina.
Wainaina said a programme to help improve the falling education standards in Thika constituency would likely be launched soon.
The MP, who is usually popularly known as Wainaina wa Jungle, surprised many when he defeated Alice Ng’ang’a of Jubilee in last year’s General Election.
Wainaina resigned via Jubilee on April 25 after the party nominations that will declared Ms Ng’ang’a the winner. He disputed the outcome, terming that will biased along with unfair.
He went on to beat all odds to win the seat as an independent candidate within the Jubilee zone.
