Shock as RUTO’s CS EZEKIEL MACHOGU now supports mediocre performance in schools – See what he told parents who ejected a Principal over poor KCPE results

Tuesday, January 16, 2024 - Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu has warned parents to stop storming schools to harass teachers over poor performance in national examinations.

This follows the storming of the school in Kakamega by parents, led by area MP Peter Salasya, and chasing away the school principal over poor results.

Machogu informed all those found mistreating school administrators will face the full force of the law.

He remarked that it was wrong for parents and students to target school administrators since they are just a cog in the education wheel and cannot be held solely responsible for pupil and student performance in the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE).

"We wish to remind communities behind these regrettable attacks that learner achievement in examinations is the reflection of the overall input from all stakeholders, including parents, teachers, and candidates themselves," he stated.

The CS announced similar future acts will be treated as acts of crime which will be dealt with by the police.

He called upon parents and students who were not satisfied with the 2023 KCPE& KCSE results to report the matter through legal means for the relevant authorities to take action.

Since the results were announced last week, there have been increased cases of parents storming schools to frog-march and harass the head teachers.

In some situations, the parents closed down the school, barricading the roads and demanding the resignation of the school head.
