Machakos high school is set to construct an Olympic size swimming pool courtesy of the school’s alumni and the Machakos county government.
This was revealed during the alumni’s visit to Governor Alfred Mutua’s offices Tuesday where the teams shared plans on how to improve the school’s infrastructure.
During the alumni’s visit that was led by Retired Justice Philip Waki, Governor Mutua offered to loan the school a bulldozer to enable them carry out the exercise smoothly.
“The alumni shared their plans for their school which includes building an Olympic size swimming pool and in support, I will mobilize a bulldozer to assist in the excavation process as well as cabro bricks from our county-owned cabro factory,” stated Mutua.
He reiterated that he joined the project because of the hard work that Machakos Boys has consistently shown in ensuring that the county remains at the top in terms of performance.
“We also shared various ways of partnership and collaboration between my government and the school that has continued to put Machakos County on the national map,” said Dr. Mutua.
The governor lauded the association for their support offered on county projects, adding that they have agreed to continue to work together to unleash the full potential of the school.
“Their love and great plans that they have for their school are commendable and truly should be emulated,” he stated.
Machakos Boys High school is located along the Machakos-Kyumbi road in Machakos town, approximately 70km from Nairobi town.
The school sits on a 118-acre piece of land and is funded by the Government of Kenya, managed by the Board of Governors together with Parents Teachers Association.
