Magoha Orders Arrest Of Principals And Parents Keeping Students Home
Prof George Magoha, Cabinet Secretary for Education, has issued a directive instructing police officers to arrest able parents who fail to pay their children’s school fees.
Speaking in Bungoma County, Magoha issued a stern warning to all education stakeholders to ensure that the school calendar is not disrupted as students prepare for national exams.
He went on to say that the government had set aside sufficient funds to cover the costs of all students attending school.
“If you find the parent has the capacity and does not want to pay, inform us and we will arrest the parent,” he affirmed.
Furthermore, he reiterated his call to principals across the country to ensure that no student is sent home because of school fee arrears, giving police permission to arrest those who disobeyed the directive.
“If you find somebody is keeping a child who is going to do an exam at home, if you are a coward and don’t want to take action, send the name to me and I will order the police to arrest the principal, that’s where we have reached.”
“All children who are going to do exams starting in about three weeks are in school and learning. We are not pleading with you because you must comply or else go create your own school and send the kids away,” he noted.

The Education Ministry has been working hard to avoid disruptions to the school calendar that will result from the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) administering five national examinations for students in Grade Six, Standard Eight, and Form Four.
Magoha recently addressed a number of concerns about the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC), including the transition of Grade Six students to junior secondary school.
He stated unequivocally that junior high schools would be housed in secondary schools.

“Transition to Grade Seven will happen when I am not there but the orders from President Uhuru Kenyatta is that we prepare and leave everything in order. For example, the examination for Grade six in December is ready,” the CS stated.
