EDITORIAL

The Eldoret National polytechnic is committed to publishing the Journal of Technology and Socio-economic Development every year. It is for this reason that the fifth volume of the Journal is now here. This is in keeping with the objective of disseminating research work to nurture and encourage more researchers to work harder and publish more in their different fields. The Innovations for Advancement of Humanity (IFAH) conference is undoubtedly a forum for rigorous deliberations on innovative ideas brought forth by the research work presented and later published in this journal. I thank the authors who sent and presented papers in the various sub-themes. The papers presented have been peer reviewed and those that met the threshold for publication are hereby published. I congratulate the authors whose papers have now become part of the wide body of published work for reference. I also thank the peer reviewers and members of the editorial board for their time and sacrifice, and all those who in one way or another ensured this journal becomes a reality.I heartily welcome all readers, and encourage you to refer to the work published in this journal in your academic works. Your input and reference will raise the profile of this journal and enhance wider exposure and access to knowledge and information contained herein. This will inspire other researchers and authors to publish with this journal.
