A school has launched a campaign to lobby for a curriculum for students suffering from cerebral palsy.
Dr Ribeiro Parklands Primary School held a seven-kilometre walk to raise awareness of the condition.
They called on the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development to develop a curriculum for children affected.
The school is the only public institution with a fully fledged cerebral palsy unit. It has 104 pupils.
"Of the pupils, 46 of them are integrated in regular schools," said the school's head teacher, Rose Mureu.
The walk was flagged off at 11am by Josephta Mukobe, Principal Secretary for the State Department of Coordination.
"We may have kicked out polio but cerebral palsy is now taking the lead and its time we ask ourselves what is this cerebral palsy and why is it coming to replace polio.Once we ask ourselves such questions,we will be able to come up with measures to combat it," he said.
She said the condition is the one of the most discriminated and expensive form of disability.
Ms Mukobe said she hoped the walk will help reveal statistics on cerebral palsy in Kenya.
The walk started at the school in Ngara through Forest Road, Uhuru Highway, Harambee Avenue, up Moi Avenue then to Globe Cinema Round About and finally back to school.
Symtoms of Cerebral Palsy include premature birth, low birth weight and blood clotting problems.
