Surprise as MIKE SONKO bans graduations in all public schools in Nairobi - Declares the ceremonies illegal because they have been misused

Tuesday October 9, 2018 - The County Government Nairobi announced on Tuesday a total ban on graduation ceremonies in public Early Childhood Development Education (ECDE) facilities.

In a memo released by the County Executive Committee Member for Education, Janet Ouko, the Mike Sonko-led Government said the ceremonies were illegal and will not allow any public school to hold them.

"We have noted with concern that schools are planning ECDE graduation ceremonies and charging parents between KSh 1,000 and Ksh 1,500.”

"This is against the spirit of free ECDE which is being implemented by H. E the Governor in Nairobi County," the memo read in part.

However, Governor Mike Sonko allowed the schools to conduct the ceremonies free of charge.

"This is, therefore, to communicate a ban on all ECDE graduation ceremonies especially if they attract a charge to parents," the memo read.
