In the video captured at Langas Primary School in Eldoret, the CS is seen angrily gesticulating at the Uasin Gishu County director of education, Dr Gitonga Mbaka, whom he calls a “complete fool” in the full glare of cameras, teachers and other officials.
Honourable Sudi has criticized Magoha’s attitude toward his junior workers noting that the CS earns a salary from Kenyan taxpayers. “You are abusing someone’s father, someone’s family.” He said
“That position you are holding, and the salary you are earning comes from all these Kenyans. Do not think you have more brains than of that elderly man you abused…you are abusing someone’s grandfather in front of students and all other Kenyans.”
“I want to tell you Magoha, even my teachers here who teach Grade three, can hold that position and perform better than you,” he continued as the crowd cheered.
He reminded Magoha that the government which gave him the job was formed by Kenyans. Hon Sudi asked the CS to apologize and stop his pride. “You can’t tell us you are a professor and that you have worked for so long and therefore you cannot apologize.
“We will stand with that elderly father, and as a whole Kenya, we will not accept that. With all your pride in that position, you were taught by these teachers. I wish I were here. That was a mistake.” Concluded the MP noting that before God we are all equal.
This comes even as the Education CS Magoha maintained that he will not apologize.
“Nobody should be surprised at how I do things, I was in KNEC (Kenya National Examinations Council) … I made things work and now I am here to protect the interest of parents and children. Anytime I cannot do that I have no business being here,” said Magoha.
KUPPET has been urging the CS to apologize before he gets cursed the Ameru Way.
“Prof Magoha must also apologise to the Ameru Council of Elders for insulting Dr Mbaka who comes from Tharaka-Nithi County and is a member of the council,” said Kuppet executive secretary Patrick Gitonga
“We are also going to call upon Njuri Ncheke so that they can maybe call on the Minister to apologise, failure to which he will be cursed the Meru way,” Gitonga stated.
