Contractors Asked To Complete CBC Classes By April 23Contractors hired to build 166 classes in Nyeri County as part of the Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) initiative have until April 23 to finish the work.In a joint statement issued at Kagumo High School, the CBC County Coordinating Committee also urged Sub-County Directors of Education to spearhead efforts to ensure the construction is finished on time.By April 19, just 80 classes in Nyeri’s eight Sub-counties had achieved a perfect score.Out of this figure, 38 classrooms had already been handed over to the government, resulting in an overall completion percentage of 80% for the County.According to Nyeri Deputy County Commissioner (DCC) John Mwangi, there is a need to expedite the process of finishing the remaining classrooms so that the County does not fall behind as the rest of the country begins the Second Phase of the program.Delays in paying contractors are one of the difficulties ascribed to the sluggish pace of the operation. Nyeri Central, for example, has neglected to pay a single contractor despite having finished seven classes.Mwangi, on the other hand, told the Committee that the situation would be handled by Friday of this week to guarantee that all pending payments were processed.Only four of the 11 classrooms certified as 100% complete in Kieni East, where the government planned to build 17 courses, have been scheduled for payment.However, Area Deputy County Commissioner Okaka Etyang stated that none of the payments had been approved as of April 19.As a result, he asked the County Director of Education, Sabina Aroni, for assistance in pursuing the case to the ministerial level.One of the contractors threatened to cancel the job at Tetu, where 21 classrooms were planned for building, arguing the undertaking made no economic sense.The same issue was reported in Mukurweini, where the government was forced to cancel four tenders after contractors withdrew due to low returns on the deal.The cost of establishing a single classroom had been estimated by the government at Ksh 788,000.ALSO READ:Sabina, on the other hand, stated that, in addition to difficulties in payment processing, a number of vouchers intended for payment approval were discovered to have inaccuracies, thus delaying the payment operations.Nonetheless, she stated that efforts were being made to guarantee that the irregularities were resolved in order to accelerate the payouts.Contractors Asked To Complete CBC Classes By April 23
