President William Ruto’s personal aide, Farouk Kibet has called for enactment of a new law that would prohibit teachers who consume alcohol from holding government positions.
During an event at a school in Uasin Gishu County on Sunday, Farouk stressed the significance of this proposed law, highlighting the influential role teachers play as role models for students.
He emphasized that teachers bear a fundamental responsibility to ensure they are never under the influence while in school environments.
Farouk asserted that the primary purpose of students attending school is to receive education, a goal that can be disrupted by teachers engaging in occasional drinking.
Farouk specifically directed National Assembly Majority Leader Kimani Ichung’wah to initiate the necessary measures to draft and enact the pertinent legislation.
“Those seeking employment as teachers, let the first thing checked during the interview is whether they consume alcohol or not,” Stated Kibet.
Ichung’wah refrained from immediately confirming whether he would present the motion in Parliament for debate.
When handed the microphone, the Kikuyu MP chose to comment on Farouk’s significant role within President William Ruto’s administration.
“You cannot access the President without Farouk’s approval. Even Cabinet Secretaries must pass through him to see the President,” he explained.
During the Turbo event, Kibet disclosed the existence of local leaders involved in deceptive practices, exploiting parents.
He elaborated that these leaders frequently take photos with him and other influential politicians. These photos are then misused by fraudsters to con vulnerable parents, extorting large sums of money from them by promising job opportunities for their children.
At the event, Kibet also donated two school buses and encouraged young schoolgirls to avoid early marriages.
“Don’t accept to get married before the right age comes, do you hear me, young girls? Even for you boys, I hear you also marry older women. That nonsense must stop, and you focus on your education,” he emphasized.
