Government Against Time To Complete CBC Classrooms
According to Education Cabinet Secretary Prof. George Magoha, the government is working around the clock to ensure that all Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) classrooms are completed before a new administration takes over.
He stated that approximately 40% of the 3,500 classrooms, or approximately 1,500 classrooms, are still under construction in the second phase.
Magoha insisted today at Ituuru Boys High School in Gatundu South, where he commissioned the second phase of CBC classroom construction, that he will continue to inspect the education facilities’ construction until a new President is sworn in.
He stated that he will continue to serve for the sake of the young students until he hands over the ministry to his successor.
He exuded confidence that in the two weeks until a new president is sworn in, if there is no election re-run, there will be enough time to finish the remaining CBC classrooms.
“If you take the 14-days of waiting to see whether a presidential candidate will go to the Supreme Court over election disputes, then there is about two weeks left to work.
“During the two weeks, I will still be working unless Kenyans tell me otherwise. Until another president is sworn in, we will continue to work. I’m doing this for the love of our children,” he insisted.
Magoha cited the construction of the CBC classrooms as one of his tenure’s highlights, saying he will leave with his head held high.
He claimed that during the term, the government saved over Sh 4 billion in classroom construction costs, funds that were previously stolen by corrupt government officials.

“In my time of service, I have blocked quite a number of channels which were previously used to siphon government money which looked normal but that is water under the bridge,” he added.
At the same time, the CS sought forgiveness from those he may have wronged during his tenure, citing the Ministry’s sometimes difficult assignments.
