Education Cabinet Secretary Professor George Magoha has thanked Kenyans for bringing out his good and bad traits while he was serving in government.
The Education CS in a media briefing on Wednesday 17th August admitted that serving in his capacity was never easy because he had to stand firm in some situations.
“I want to thank you for having walked with me and having taken the good, the bad, and the ugly side of me because that is a human being,” Professor Magoha said
“There is nobody who is perfect, I believe that in order for me to be given the opportunity to serve in this capacity it was purely by the grace of God.”
He also acknowledged that he may have come off as self-centered, particularly at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, but that he had to step up and take firm leadership roles.
He apologized to all Kenyans and insisted that he had fulfilled his duty.
“It has not been easy being a CS for education during COVID and in order for me to move things forward I have been very firm and in between the firmness I have cracked certain jokes,”
“I want to say without any fear of contradiction that if any of those jokes have gone to the wrong side, that was not the intention and my apologies to the general public about that,” he said.
He also said that he hopes to finish the last phase of construction of Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) classrooms across the country by the end of his term.
“We are now at 75 percent which leaves us with a tough nut to crack of about 1,200 classrooms. I strongly believe that we shall be able to complete the classrooms so that whenever the new CS takes over he finds that he has a smooth place to start from.”
