LIVING THE DREAM
For aeons, the Kagumo fraternity and her visitors have endured a road network that is dilapidated- bedeviled with potholes and quite unpleasant to walk or drive on. Attempts have been made in the past to have this remedied but to no avail. During a number of the graduation ceremonies held in the recent past, the management has made an appeal for assistance towards this end but it has not borne any fruits. This has resulted in the management trying to address the issue by filling the potholes using concrete which did work, but just for a while. As is wont to happen, these repairs wear off only too soon.
Our appeals have finally been heard. The Ministry of Transport, Infrastructure, Housing & Urban Development has given the College 10 million Kenya shillings in the form of grants to redo the roads in the college. The project which is under the Kenya Rural Roads Authority (KeRRA) has commenced. Phase one of this project will cover the main road from the gate, the parking lot outside the administration block and will continue up to the Library. The other road to be redone is that alongside the administration and the ladies hostel up to the dining hall and through to the Multi – purpose hall.
It is exciting to see that work has commenced, leveling is ongoing and a caterpillar is actually on the ground! A promise of serious work in the pipeline. Soon we shall have cabros and tarmac to enjoy.
We are just about to live the dream. It is our prayer that the College can get even more funds to cater for the remaining parts so as to see this good work that has started go through to completion.
