The directive came after complaints abound, that parents are enlisting their children in income generating activities, some of them illegal like brewing of illicit brews.
“We have received complaints that some parents have withdrawn their children from schools to assist them in illicit brewing. We are watching them and we will never allow this to happen,” said Irungu.
Separately, teachers in the county have vowed to down their tools if the Government does not pay their July salaries.
Kenya National Union of Teachers Executive Secretary Jackson Thangei said the Government will witness a strike of a different kind, where teachers will be reporting in schools but will not be doing any work.
He said there was a return-to-work formula following the 24 day teachers strike, and thus whatever was agreed upon between the two sides must be adhered to.
Laikipia East MP Mr Anthony Mutahi who also attended the function supported the teachers saying the just-ended strike could have been averted if the Government listened to the opinion of the parliamentary committee on education.
