Date:

  • President Uhuru Kenyatta, while chairing the National and County Governments Coordinating Summit at State House on Monday, July 27, directed CSs Ukur Yattani (Treasury) and CS George Magoha (Education) to expedite the payment
  • The president further directed the Education Ministry to commence a transformative program to upgrade all basic learning institutions in Kenya.

This comes in a wake of outcry by BOM teachers who have for long lamented of being left out in the Covid-19 government cushioning program. Many were left in abject dire situation from the time school closed and complained that they were no longer receiving money from the school as the head teachers claim there is no money.
Education CS George Magoha was also tasked with developing protocols for community learning, which shall guide learning through a teacher-volunteering program for children living in the same community or neighbourhood across the country.
The president further directed the Education Ministry to commence a transformative program to upgrade all basic learning institutions in Kenya.
The president’s directive however did not include the many teachers from private schools who were left helpless after the schools closed. Most Directors from private schools who majorly relay on fees to run day to day school programs and pay staff salary were left with no option but halt salary payments to their teaching and non-teaching staff due to the effect off Covid- 19 that saw their income source cut short.
