The CAS was responding to sentiments from area Chief Beatrice Koilah on early pregnancies and increased school drop-out rates in the region.
Previous studies have shown that Narok County is among the counties leading in early pregnancies and school dropouts.
He added that it is ironic that the government works to create a conducive environment for learning yet some people take advantage of those who should benefit from the move.
“The President and his deputy are at the forefront in ensuring that the schools are constructed and it is therefore a shame to hear that girls here in Narok are out of schools because of early pregnancies, that one we will not tolerate” he said.
On the welfare of schools in the country, the CAS said the government’s last mile electricity connectivity will see the remaining schools in Narok County and across the country also connected to ensure quality education.
He called on the area chiefs to ensure that they submit the names of the schools yet to be connected to electricity so that action can be taken.
“The government is committed to ensure that by next year all schools are connected and therefore I call on chiefs to ensure they submit names of such schools” said Ole Ntutu.
Others at the function include Education Director Elijah Mungai, who represented Education PS Belio Kipsang; Ms Rebecca Tonke, who contested the Narok County Woman Rep seat and Narok County Tourism CEC Samuel Ole Karia.
