The Mombasa County government has launched the free milk programme for primary and nursery schools in the county.

Mombasa governor Ali Hassan Joho oversaw the successful launch of the initiative at the Mombasa County Stadium yesterday. The programme which is reminiscent of the Nyayo era is aimed at retaining pupils in school.

Plans are also in place to introduce porridge for children in Early Childhood and Development Centres in the 2015-16 financial year.

Here are photos from the launch
