Hon. Francis Muya MCA Langas Ward has urged students to be disciplined in their studies and stay at school. Speaking to students of St. Augustine Soysambu Secondary School from Kakamega County who were on an academic trip to the County Assembly of Uasin Gishu, Muya cautioned the students against engaging in activities that are likely to jeopardize their studies.
He pointed out the rampant arson cases being witnessed in many schools across the county which he attributed to peer pressure and lack of academic focus. Muya advised the students to embrace Godly values and shun bad peer pressure.
“The only way you can desist from burning down your school is to embrace God. When you seek and pray to God, he will guide you in the right way.” Said Muya.
Hon. Muya also encouraged the students to engage in constructive activities while in school like group discussions which add value to their life and avoid engaging in immoral ones like sexual activities. He advised the students to abstain from sex till when they are mature and married.
“You are still too young to engage in sex. First complete your secondary school and university education then think of marriage. At that point you are ready for sex,” Muya advised the students.
During the visit the students had been taken around the Assembly and informed of the various roles each department played. They also had an interactive session at the public gallery of the Assembly. Mr. David Sum the Assembly’s Public Relations Officer and Mr. Jackson Mutai from the Hansard Department facilitated the session in which they responded to students’ inquiries about the Assembly and the whole aspect of devolution.
The students were accompanied by their teachers led by Ms. Celestine Cherono. Ms. Cherono hailed the County Staff for the warm welcome and the parental advice to students from Hon. Muya.
