The majority of the people i.e. 80% live in abject poverty i.e. they cannot spend more than one dollar per day. Due to this most students cannot afford to pay for their education expenses which cover tuition, building and development expenses, food and catering, money to buy books and lastly the school uniform. Before free education was introduced most of the student dropped out of school due to lack of school fees. The government at that time was corrupt and very inefficient, these lend to massive deterioration of the country education sector, and international funds were also not available as donor funds were withheld due to the many corruption scandals.

The province is strategically located and has an ethnic mix of the kikuyu, Maasai, kalenjin, the Kisii, luo Turkana, Samburu and many more others who have moved into the province. Because of this mix, various tribes occasionally attack each other because they want to control the province vital resources.
