Speaking to the press Wednesday morning after a meeting with education stakeholders at Our Lady of Fatima Girls Secondary School in Kariobangi North, Prof Magoha asked teachers to take away and hold the sanitisers for their students, and only give them back when they are leaving the school premises.
He cited an event where the sanitisers were used to light a fire in a school. He also announced that 99.9 per cent of all learners are back to class.
On the matter of desks, he announced that 12 Counties have already received 100 per cent of the desks and that 86 per cent of suppliers have already been paid their balance.
“Many counties have approached the 100 per cent mark and I urge them to step up the distribution as we seek to complete the exercise and focus on effective learning and preparation for examination”.
He complimented Nairobi county for doing 100 pc desk distribution.
“ I wish to particularly commend Nairobi County for achieving 100 per cent desk distribution. At the County, 14,490 desks have been supplied to primary schools at a cost of Sh36.2 million while 5,150 have been delivered to secondary schools at a cost of Ksh19.75 Million”
He announced an extra 25 per cent of the entire disbursement to schools will soon be made available for the smooth running. Some of the top-performing counties in the desk distribution with over 80% are:
