The government’s effort in maintaining the success of the competency-based curriculum (CBC) is still firm. The ministries of education and interior National coordination are setting the ground rules for the construction of 10,000 additional classrooms as directed by President Uhuru Kenyatta, during the 58th Mashujaa day celebrations.
This is set to ensure that no learner that will be transitioning to junior secondary school in 2023, will miss classroom space. “Time is of the essence and we must keep the deadline that we have been given by the president and we must ensure that the work is done and delivered”. Said Dr. Fred Matiangi.
The 1st phase is expected to be complete by April next year before the second phase begins. This is because during the same year candidates under the 8.4.4 system of education will be graduating to form one.
The first phase is expected to cost close to 8 billion shillings. “We have identified where the gaps are and we are ready for this project,” said Professor George Magoha.
With the president having directed that the contracts be awarded to local qualified contractors, chefs have been tasked with the responsibility of counting for the individuals.
Equally, to avert the issue of payments frustrations on impending bills through the middlemen high jacking the payment process, this time contractors will be paid directly.
