Nakuru County Governor H E Susan Kihika, in furtherance of her commitment to enhancing the education sector, this morning opened a new dormitory at Mary Mount Secondary School in Molo sub-county aiming to improve the living conditions for students.
She joined Molo MP Kuria Kimani and Mary Mount Secondary School Principal, Perpetua Chelimo to open the facility which has been equipped with necessary amenities financed by several stakeholders.
During her address to the students, Governor Kihika seized the opportunity to motivate the girls to concentrate on their studies and establish a strong educational foundation. This, she explained, would pave the way for them to choose their desired career path in the future.
The governor emphasized that nothing is handed to women on a silver platter, and they often have to work twice as hard to prove their worth saying the students presented ambition and potential.
“Ensure you work hard in your studies, In my case I told my family I wanted to join politics and they thought it was a joke, they were not convinced but here we are,” said Kihika.
She encouraged the students to view the world as a blank canvas where they could create their desired future, be it in politics or any other profession. As a gesture of support, the governor also distributed sanitary towels to help remove the stigma surrounding menstruation.
“Periods are a natural occurrence and we need to end the stigma around the same. Ensure you fully focus on your studies go to university and do your best,” she added.
Molo MP Kuria Kimani praised Governor Kihika, stating that she is a shining example that girls can achieve success in life. He commended her for being the first female Speaker, Senator, and Governor in Nakuru. He further urged the girls to compete for opportunities and strive for excellence.
“Our governor is a testament to what girls can achieve, she became the first female Speaker, Senator, and now Governor,” said Kimani.
