All public primary schools will have laptops by the end of November, the government has said.

Making the promise on Thursday, August 8, Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Principal Secretary Jerome Ochieng said the government was not turning back on the project, adding that the project will be of great help especially after the new curriculum has been fully implemented.

“Every primary school in Kenya will have laptops as promised by the Jubilee government. No one should think of this project failing,” he said.

The PS said the government has put up all the required infrastructure, such as electricity connection, for smooth implementation of the project.

Ochieng (pictured) said the Ksh24.6 billion project will be delivered through collaboration with universities such as Jkuat and Moi, tasked to manufacture some of the devices.
