Wakoli’s Leadership Shines Amidst Sanitation Challenges in Matungu


In the face of a looming crisis at Suwo Primary School, Bernard Wakoli, the frontrunner for parliamentary representation in Matungu Constituency, has emerged as a hero. Swiftly responding to a directive from public health officers in Kakamega County threatening the school’s closure due to appalling sanitation conditions, Wakoli ensured the school remains open and safe for its students.

Wakoli’s recent success in completing the construction of toilets at Eshibanze Primary School has emboldened his resolve to confront the sanitation crisis head-on. Recognizing the critical importance of adequate sanitation facilities in schools, Wakoli has pledged to prioritize similar projects across the constituency, guaranteeing every child access to a clean and safe learning environment.

The dire state of sanitation facilities in public schools within Matungu Constituency has reached a breaking point, with Suwo Primary School being just one of the casualties. “We have pupils with special needs who can’t comfortably use the normal latrines. Their special latrine is now a danger to them as it could sink any time after it developed huge cracks,” expressed one teacher, highlighting the urgent need for improved facilities.

“The pit latrines are now producing an odor, which has made learning difficult,” lamented another teacher, emphasizing the detrimental impact of poor sanitation on the educational experience. Two other schools have already been shuttered by the Department of Public Health due to insufficient toilet facilities. The plight of special needs students, unable to access suitable latrines, further underscores the urgency of addressing this pressing issue.

Wakoli didn’t hold back when criticizing the incumbent Member of Parliament, Peter Nabulindo, for alleged neglect and mismanagement of Constituency Development Fund (CDF) resources. “Nabulindo’s tenure has been marked by numerous failed projects, leaving many schools and communities in dire need of essential services. My promise of better leadership offers a glimmer of hope for residents disillusioned by the current state of affairs,” he said.

Bernard Wakoli’s prompt intervention at Suwo Primary School has not only averted a crisis but also reignited hope for positive change in Matungu Constituency. His commitment to addressing the sanitation challenges faced by schools is a testament to his dedication to the community’s well-being. As the parliamentary frontrunner, Wakoli’s pledges of better leadership offer a beacon of optimism for residents eager for tangible improvements in their daily lives.
