From his humble background of growing up in a home where Chang’aa was being brewed and working on brick making sector to educate himself, Suna West MP Peter Masara has done well in education sector since being elected in last polls.
“I believe that education is the only key to change a society and we the schools have been started under needs accesment from public participation,” he said.
The legislator said in Wiga ward which is the heart of gold mining, there was no girls’ secondary school as St Peters Abwao and Masara Secondary were mixed schools.
“This school has helped to shape girls’ education in the world and in 2018 when we started it there was nothing, we now have a dormitory, two teachers quarters and classrooms. Today we have a new administration block,” Masara said.
He said in Oruba-Ragana ward, which is within town high population density saw existing schools being overwhelmed as the new schools already have an average of 1,000 students within a short time.
“Outside town students used to trek for long to access education, we have changed that,” he added.
