    “Why did u buy CRT monitors in the age of TFTs? These computers I bet are Pentium 3 at least. Where did you collect them?” wondered Vincent Wangosho

    A section of netizens stated that Ruto had launched a computer museum instead of an ICT centre

    “Ruto is touching the computer with the tips of his fingers because they are too dusty for his liking. The computer is also without a keyboard someone must have stolen it,” observed John Mautta.

    Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Mukomen, however, clarified to kenyagist.com that the plan was to face out the old models and replace them with newer ones. 

    “We raised Ksh18 million for equipping the center by purchasing new computers to replace the obsolete ones, purchase new books and complete ongoing construction of the dormitory,” explained Murkomen. 

    The center was funded through joint efforts by the Ministry of Education and the National Government CDF in Marakwet East.
