Land allegedly grabbed from Ankurani Primary School in Igembe South will be returned, Meru County education director has vowed.

Speaking at Ankurani Primary School in Kithetu, Meru County, Ms Kagwiria said she would be chairing the committee meetings aimed at resolving various problems facing the school.

This comes barely one week after locals and the school’s stakeholders threatened to protest against poor management by the school committee.

She promised to follow-up on the disputed piece of land and take immediate action to ensure the land is given to its rightful owner.

She further cautioned contractors who don’t deliver that they would not be paid.

“I also want to sound a warning to the contractors who did a shoddy job while constructing classrooms funded by the CDF that they will not receive their payment until the work is done properly,” she warned.

Elsewhere, over 100 residents of Kamahuha in Maragua Murang’a County on Wednesday took to the streets to protest against the poor state of roads in the area.

The irate villagers accused the area MCA of worsening the state of the roads at Sabasaba, saying that the new murrum road is dusty and worse that it was before.

“The MCA should have prioritised other local roads which are in poor state after consulting the locals instead of attempting to repair the already murrumed road which is worsened now and could be impassable during the rainy season,” lamented one resident.
