President Uhuru Kenyatta’s initiative of reviving 4K Clubs (Kuungana, Kufanya, Kusaidia Kenya) in schools has been warmly received by stakeholders in Trans Mara. This comes as Sub-County committees spearhead the implementation of the initiative in Trans Mara West and Trans Mara South.

During the committees’ launch in Kilgoris, Sub-County Agricultural Officer Stephen Omondi expressed his support for the 4K Club Revival Initiative. Omondi termed it as relevant to the current Competent-Based Curriculum being implemented in the country. “With all the resources and manpower, the country has, it’s a shame that some parts of the nation still depend on relief food. However, with the government’s effort to revive the 4K clubs and the current CBC program being implemented, relief food will be a thing of the past,” he said.

George Onyango, Trans Mara South Deputy County Commissioner, added that the success of the initiative will be determined by the stakeholders’ cooperation,” This program will only be successful if all of us were to embrace and own it”.

The area’s Sub County Education Officer Chrispine Omondi urged schools in the region to conduct preliminaries as soon as possible in preparation for the role out of the program.

As for the two regions i.e. Trans Mara West and South, the committees formed will be chaired by the two deputy county commissioners assisted by the sub county agricultural officers. Among other duties, the committees have been mandated with the task of ensuring that 4K clubs are revived in the schools within the region by conducting stakeholder networking and collaboration, coordination of sub county presidential award schemes, resource mobilization and publicity.
