CBC Classroom Project On Course, Magoha Assures
Prof. George Magoha, Cabinet Secretary for Education, on Thursday dedicated phase two of the CBC classrooms in Kiambu County.
The CS, who visited Rungiri, Uthiru, and Mary Leakey secondary schools in Kabete Sub-County, stated that the CBC classrooms were progressing well and that the Kabete Sub-County classrooms were on track and at 100% completion.
The CS confirmed that the second phase of CBC classrooms is at 80 percent across the country, with Kiambu County currently at 94 percent but on track to reach 100 percent by next week, with over 3,500 classrooms delivered.
The CS confirmed that counties such as Marsabit, Mandera, and even Nyeri were at 100 percent, but added that while the zones of Nyanza, North Eastern, and Central were doing well, the Western part, which is at around 68 percent, and Nairobi and Mombasa were still lagging behind.
“We need to encourage each other and be able to complete these classrooms, money is there, and we are building the schools at almost half the usual price at Sh788, 200 shillings compared to around Sh1.4 million that would normally be used.
“Together as a team we want to deliver 10,000 classrooms in about 10 months,” the CS said.
He urged the incoming administration to begin work on the additional 10,000 classrooms that may be required, and he thanked the county chiefs and county commissioners who have been at the forefront of ensuring that the classes are completed on time.
The CS acknowledged that the biggest elephant in the room will be the CBC transition, as there will be two intakes in January next year.
He thanked the private schools for producing around 5,000 classrooms for Junior Secondary School.
Two CBC classrooms at PCEA Rungiri High School in Kabete, two CBC classrooms at Uthiru Girls High, and two CBC classrooms at Mary Leakey Girls High School in Kiambu County were officially opened on Thursday.
