MAGOHA leaves Head teachers in stitches as he describes himself and why people fear him - For the moment, they forgot about SOSSION and the new CBC

Wednesday 12, 2019 - Education Cabinet Secretary, Prof George Magoha, left teachers in stitches on Tuesday after he described his look.

Speaking during the launch of Kenya Secondary Headteachers Association (KESSHA) conference in Mombasa, the CS lifted the lid on his personality and explained why most people misunderstand him.

“So I am going to explain to you the way I look. I know niko na sura mbaya (I have an ugly face). But having said so, my strength comes from God and my firmness,” said Magoha amid laughter.

 “I am a professor and people say I am proud. Yes. If I am not proud of myself, who is going to be proud of me? So you should also be proud as teachers because teachers are the most important professionals," he added.

The CS hit out at his opponents who claim he is arrogant saying they were mistaking his firmness for arrogance.

Magoha said that having schooled at the Starehe Boys' Centre under the leadership of feared disciplinarian, Geoffrey William Griffin, he could not afford to have a bossy attitude. 

“How can a Starehe boy be arrogant? We are trained to be servant leaders by example and that is why you see me everywhere. I am telling you this so that you don’t listen to other description of the son of Magoha,” said the former University of Nairobi Vice-Chancellor.

Magoha has been under heavy criticism from the Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) Secretary-General, Wilson Sossion, over the implementation of the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC).

Sossion accuses the CS of being arrogant for allegedly ignoring other stakeholders in the education sector in the implementation of the new curriculum.
