Magoha Annoyed Over Slow Pace of Constructing CBC Classrooms
Magoha said the slow progress in the classrooms construction hampers the national drive to have the facilities completed ahead of next year’s rollover to junior secondary schools.
Speaking at Singore Girls during the routine checks,Magoha said the government is doing all that is possible to have the classes done. He asked the county coordinators to speed up their work in pushing contractors expedite the construction.
“The progress in this county is wanting. The inactivity in all the process is here at Iten. Much has to be done,”he remarked, referring to Elgeyo Marakwet County.
The CS said the government is determined in ensuring all parts of the country have enough facilities for the new curriculum to be successful an promote equality among learners in the county.
He singled out Kerio Valley region within the county which has been witnessing banditry attacks with the CS saying government efforts have been drained to have the classrooms constructed.
“The government of Kenya has currently constituted shall make sure that every classroom is build”, tough talking Magoha said.He added that the government may use the army to build the classes in the conflict prone areas.
He said only one classroom has been constructed in the entire region.
At the same time, Magoha said form selection has been concluded urging parents to accept the schools that their children have been selected to join. Saying not all learners with over 400 marks will be placed in National schools, Magoha called on the parents to be contented with the selection process.
He notes“what I want to tell the parents is that my job is to ensure that the 1 million learners who sat for the exam are placed and secondly national schools are schools which meant to have national character and we have done our best to place the deserving students.”
