Mr. Philip Kalweo a teacher in Turkana shocked many by his determination to have KCSE exams carry on in time regardless of the unbearable floods caused by collapsing of the Kainuk bridge rendering it impassable
The ordinary teacher with KCSE documents and his shoes on his hands would have chosen to wait for help, blame the government; county and central and let exams pass by but the teacher in him couldn’t wait.
“This man should get best teacher award. Share widely and show the world his zeal” Tweeted Don Roy
Flash floods washed away Kainuk bridge, cutting off Turkana County from the rest of Kenya. The bridge passes over Turkwel River links Turkana to other regions and also connects Kenya to South Sudan
Nearly every rainy season, the Kainuk bridge in Turkana gets damaged and every time, a new tender to reconstruct it is handed out.
Kainuk Bridge that connects Turkana with the rest of Kenya collapsed barely two weeks after repair raising concerns of poor constructions guided by the tender value and not strict and proper delivery of job briefs satirically termed as ‘tenderpreneurship’
Kenya National Highway Authority (KeNHA) moved in to have it repaired and promised swift action to bring back normalcy as even normal human movement and trading is affected
