Ezekiel Machogu Profile: Appointed Education CS To Replace Magoha

On Tuesday, September 27, former Nyaribari Masaba member of parliament (MP) Ezekiel Machogu was selected as the nominee to head the education ministry.

Prof. George Magoha will be recognized for simplifying the Ministry of Education, from the adoption of the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) to the reduction of test leakages during his stint as the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) CEO. Machogu will succeed Prof. Magoha.

The newly appointed CS thanked President William Ruto for his confidence and pledged to serve the country with diligence.

The nomination of Ezekiel Machogu as the new Education Cabinet Secretary, succeeding George Omore Magoha, marks the beginning of a review of CBC.

In 1976, Machogu began his public service career as a district officer (DO) under the administration of President Daniel Moi.

He was then promoted to the position of District Commissioner (DC).

Before entering politics, he served as senior deputy secretary at the Public Service Commission (PSC) from 2008 to 2016.

In 2017, the public administrator ran for and won the parliamentary seat for Nyabari Masaba on the National Agenda Party of Kenya (NAPK) ticket.

In the House of Representatives, he sat on the Regional Integration Committee and the Services and Facilities Committee.

During the August 9 elections, he ran for governor of Kisii on the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) ticket but lost to Orange Democratic Movement Governor Simba Arati (ODM).

Before enrolling at Agoro Sare High School in Oyugis, Homa Bay County, Machogu attended Nduru Hugh School.


In 1979, he also earned a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Nairobi (UoN).

Upon ratification by the National Assembly, Machogu will evaluate the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC), whose task force has yet to be established.
