Magoha Blames Poor parenting For Turning Schools into Sodom and Gomorrah.
Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha has warned that a lack of parental guidance is slowly turning Kenya into Sodom and Gomorrah.
The CS warned that Kenya is slowly turning into ‘Sodom and Gomorrah’ because some parents spoil their children terming this kind of parenting “dangerous.”
Magoha said “we should not expect our teachers to teach them good morals,” adding that some secondary school students abuse hard drugs because their parents give them too much pocket money.
Such students according to Magoha should attend day schools where their parents can keep an eye on them.
He was perplexed as to why some parents insisted on sending their children to boarding schools.
Prof Magoha was speaking at Kabarak University’s 17th graduation ceremony in Nakuru County on Friday, where he praised the institution for being a leader in character formation in students.
Professor noted that nobody can be intelligent unless they have a good character adding that it is because of good character development that Kabarak University and Moi High School Kabarak are shining today.
He condemned the burning of schools by misbehaving students.
He stated that the interference in the academic calendar caused by Covid-19 will be considered in next year’s national examinations.
“We are alive to the fact that candidates will be doing the exams under Covid-19 circumstances and they have nothing to fear because the questions they will tackle will not ask them for what they don’t know,” said Prof Magoha.

Those who are making noise about exam preparations and students’ readiness to take the exams in March 2022, he claims, are raising a false alarm.
He reassured parents that the students will take the exams in March 2022, by the grace of God.
“The problem with this country when it comes to matters education is that everybody seems to be an expert and they end up confusing students and parents,” said Prof Magoha.
