Speaking at Kendege, Devolution Principal Secretary Nelson Marwa said the institution was in line with the Jubilee governments agenda.
“When President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto were pledging these things in their campaigns, people thought these are just stories,” Marwa said.
Marwa urged county residents to take their students to the institution to help uplift the education standards in the region.
“We don’t want the money spent by both governments to go to waste,” Marwa said.
In a move to ensure learning at the institution kicks off, Kuria East MP Marwa Kitayama said he’ll sponsor 80 students to the TTI.
