Standard Group CEO Sam Shollei has urged institutions of higher learning to inculcate and invest in the diverse cultures of this country for sustainable development of various communities.
Mr Shollei noted that in order to adapt to the fast-paced world and daily changing perceptions, it is important for teachers to play a more dynamic role by engaging and interacting with society on a community development level. In his speech read by Standard Group’s Finance Director Orlando Lyomu, at Kaimosi Teacher’s Training College yesterday during celebration of their 13th annual Cultural Week, Shollei stressed the need to have teachers with practical skills in society.
“Teachers should assist in the development and implementation of key sustainable projects and using their invaluable skills to enhance the process. One way through which this will be done, is by allowing students to engage in understanding their cultures,” Shollei said.
Also present at the celebration was the Group’s Regional Commercial Manager Grace Kabbis, and Western Region Commercial Team Leader Davis Mulimi.

Shollei said sustainable development should allow for the meeting of daily needs and living in an environment responsibly, in order to ensure that generations to come can utilise the same resources.
“The teacher is indeed the most crucial agent in ensuring sustainable development is implemented effectively, and transferred to our children in schools,” he said.
