Education CS George Magoha on Friday November 6, 2020, expressed his disappointment with the pathetic state of Langas Primary School compound in Eldoret, Uasin Gishu County when he arrived at the institution to assess its level of preparedness.
The visibly irritated CS forced teachers to collect garbage and clean the school which had been littered with dirt.
Students, who were in classes at the time, had a rare debacle as they watched their teachers deal with the embarrassment.
Magoha reiterated that the hygiene of any school was paramount especially with Grade 4, Class 8 and Form 4 students continuing with their studies ahead of sitting national exams.Langas Primary School in Eldoret, Uasin Gishu County
The CS further warned cartels colluding with headteachers and officials from his Ministry to frustrate the government's Ksh 1.9 billion desk project.
He disclosed that school heads were splitting and diverting deliveries meant for public schools.
The medic issued them a 24-hour deadline to reverse the processes they had undertaken.
"I want to warn them in public during daylight that every desk meant for public schools will go to the students in those institutions."
"For those teachers in Migori County, who are colluding with some of my officers thinking that they are smarter than the government, I want to give them 24 hours to rectify," Magoha warned.
On September 11, he stated that the government instituted various risk mitigation strategies against corruption in the project.
The CS is expected to revise the academic calendar and syllabus to protect students from having a whole year.
The process will also ensure no student repeats a class and will also prevent double intakes.Education CS George Magoha speaks to a student at Langas Primary School in Eldoret, Uasin Gishu County on Friday, November 6, 2020dead corruption
