Magoha Assures CBC Contractors Of Payment
Prof. George Magoha, Cabinet Secretary for Education, has assured all contractors working on the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) classes that they will be paid once the work is completed in accordance with the Ministry of Education’s standards.
Magoha stated that the government released sh.3.2 billion for the payment four months ago and that 1,300 contractors have received their dues, which are being paid through Mpesa.
During an inspection tour of CBC classrooms in Keiyo North constituency, Elgeyo Marakwet County, the CS instructed contractors who have yet to complete the classrooms to do so within the next 10 days.
“We are moving to the second phase of the construction in the coming month and we cannot do so if we have not completed the first phase,” the CS said.
Magoha expressed regret that only one classroom had been completed in the insecure Kerio Valley and vowed to see that the classes were built, even if it meant enlisting the army’s help.
“We shall ensure that every classroom is built, we shall even take the army there,” Magoha vowed.
He stated that if the government conducted national examinations in the area, there was no reason why classes should not be built in Kerio Valley, and that all Kenyan students should have access to education facilities regardless of where they live.
The CS expressed his delight that some private schools had already begun construction of CBC classrooms, stating that they would begin inspecting them to ensure they were built in accordance with the established standards.
He urged private schools, particularly in major cities such as Nairobi, Kisumu, and Eldoret, to build classes to accommodate students transitioning to junior secondary school.
He stated that, with the ongoing placement of students into secondary schools, many students from private schools were competing for public secondary schools.
The CS, on the other hand, urged Kenyans to accept placement in any school, claiming that all schools are the same and that the Teachers Service Commission places qualified teachers in all secondary schools in Kenya.
Prof. Magoha has warned that the government will not allow anyone to interfere with the ongoing marking of Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) Examinations.
