Barclays chief roots for former academic giant
By Ali Abdi
The Government has been challenged to revive the once famous Garba-Tulla High School in Isiolo.
Barclays Bank Managing Director Adan Mohammed said the former national school, which collapsed in 2002, should be returned to its former glory.
Speaking during Garba-Tulla District Education Day, Mr Mohammed said: "It is essential to bring back the school to where it was."
He urged the Government, local leaders and well-wishers to help rehabilitate the school’s facilities. The school was relegated to district status after it collapsed.
Most of its ultra-modern facilities including a greenhouse, basketball courts and teachers’ quarters are dilapidated.
Speaking to the students, Mohammed told them how he envied the school, while he attended a village school in Mandera District.
"I envied this school, but could not get admission. I went to a village school in Elwak that had poor facilities, but I worked hard," he said.
