The information has emerged exhibiting how President Uhuru Kenyatta reacted to a video of Education CS George Magoha abusing a County Director of Education.
Internal sources revealed to Daily Nation affirmed that the Head of State was not gratified by the incident which sparked anger and public condemnation of the Cabinet Secretary.
Kenyatta was further angered that the CS caused a picture which attracted public resentment forcing the Public Service Commission to withdraw his power to manage the human resource functions.
Insiders who spoke to Standard added that the President is losing faith in Magoha for taking long to resolve the education crisis.
On Thursday, November 12th, President Kenyatta directed the CS to issue the 2021 academic calendar within 14 days. Grade four, Class eight and Form 4 students were the only ones approved to resume learning on October 12, with other learners stuck at home for over 7 months.
"As a parent and a grandparent, I share in the pain and frustration of most parents in having our children home for nearly an entire year.
However, as a responsible government, we put the health and safety of the children as the paramount consideration," Kenyatta stated while speaking to a joint session of the National Assembly and Senate.
The Education stakeholders embraced PSC's directive which gave human resource powers to Magoha's assistant, Principal Secretary Belio Kipsang.
Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet) Chairman Omboko Milemba praised PSC for stripping Magoha's powers.
“All he needed was to apologise and humble himself. Education is a social sector where social values are valuable.
"This should be a lesson to all of us in the public sector to be careful the way we deal with human resource issues," Milemba stated.
Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) Secretary-General supported Magoha and rebuked the directive issued by PSC Chairman Stephen Kirogo.
"He has not abused teachers. He is simply disciplining his staff," Sossion stated.
