Kenya Government Introduces Laptop project.

As a core part of its manifesto, the Jubilee government has set aside Kenya shillings 51 billion (approximately US$ 11.7 million ) this financial year to implement the laptop project from standard one kids.
President Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto had pledged during their campaigns that every pupil joining standard one will be given a solar powered laptop.
This promise which made them get branded as 'Digital Team' has been equally praised and criticised and the same time.
Teachers has asked the government to suspend the project and redirect the money to more urgent matters including pay the outstanding allowances to the teachers.
Teachers have vowed to go on industrial action if their dues are not met.

Should the Government reallocate the 51billion to Teachers Salaries?
