The head of the Catholic Diocese of Bungoma Parish Father Christopher Wanyonyi has today urged the young girls in Bungoma County to take up science courses instead of leaving them to the boy-child.

Speaking during a procession by local schools girls in Bungoma town, Father Wanyonyi appreciated the efforts the young girls are doing in order to compete favourably with the boy child.

The procession, organised by Girls Advocacy Initiative, had stopped briefly at the entrance of The Diocese when Father Wanyonyi emerged to pray for them before the procession proceeded to Posta Grounds. 

“Girls are leaving Science subjects and courses to boys but remember, even these boys are just human beings like you and created by the same Almighty God,” said Father Wanyonyi amid cheers from the excited school girls.

“We want our women and girls to challenge men in landing big paying jobs and not just small jobs and I believe you can do it.”

Father Wanyonyi then hailed Doctor Rebecca Masibayi, the organiser and Director of the advocacy group for being an inspiration to the young girls. 

He also wished all the KCPE and KCSE candidates success ahead of their national exams.
