‘Wewe Ni Mjinga Kabisa,’ Magoha Publicly Insults A CDE
The comical cabinet secretary for education, Professor George Magoha, is on the spotlight again. Residents of Eldoret were not impressed after the former KNEC boss fearlessly insulted Uasin Gishu County Director Of Education, Mr. Gitonga Mbaka.
The cabinet secretary was in an inspection tour in Eldoret to assess the work being done by jua kali youths, who were tasked with making of desks to be supplied in schools within the county. The desks were being made at Eldoret polytechnic. During this tour, education stake holders within the county arrived at the scene to welcome Magoha.
The heads, alongside other stake holders, were to inform the CS about how prepared they are to reduce the infection rate of Covid-19 in learning institutions.
Mr. Gitonga was determined to give prof. Magoha a very crucial report. ‘Sir I have a report. This is what needs to be done,’ humble Gitonga said to the ‘omniscient’ cabinet secretary. Instead of giving him a listening ear, the professor instantly attacked him with insults.
‘Nikisema Wewe ni Mjinga nimedanganya? (Am I wrong to call you stupid?). You are talking about the report!..and we are talking about what is on the ground…’said furious Magoha.

The CDE attempted to ask for forgiveness but the CS got more annoyed and kicked him out of the meeting. ‘Unaeza enda (Just Go),’ he told the already deesteemed CDE, while pointing him the exit.
In his address to the media shortly after the incident, the CS made it clear that he does not deal with reports but rather deals with outputs.” I have noted that my field officers at the lower levels only follow me when I visit schools,” the CS claimed. He termed such moves as mere public relations, meant to deceive him that serious work is ongoing, yet on the ground, there is nothing to show.
