Wednesday October 3, 2018 - Members of Parliament have expressed concern over Education CS Amina Mohammed's trips away from the country only a few days to the start of national examinations.
Amina told MPs yesterday that she will be out of the country and will only return three days to the start of the exams.
Her response angered MPs with the committee chairperson, Julius Meli, holding that the Education CS and the Principal Secretary could not convince Parliament that they had managed the sector properly, accusing them of leaving crucial duties to junior staff.
"We are not convinced with the way they have handled the docket.”
“They have left critical issues and tasks like exams to junior staff," observed Meli.
Malava MP, Malulu Injendi, faulted the foreign trips saying it was wrong for the CS to be outside the country at a time the country was readying for national exams.
"The CS should know that she is no longer in the Foreign Affairs docket but in the Education Ministry," urged Injendi.
