Nominated senator Millicent Omanga has badly attacked Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha over his announcement on opening of schools.
Omanga in a Tuesday night tweet took on the CS, arguing that it was not in order for him to give parents only five days to prepare for the phased reopening of schools.
Schools across the country are set to begin a phased reopening on October 12.
CS Magoha on Tuesday ordered Grade 4, Class 8 and Form 4 student back to classes after a 205-day hiatus occasioned by the coronavirus pandemic.
Already, teachers are in their second week of school with no learners.
However, Omanga argues that CS Magoha is incompetent. She says that many parents have been out of work for over 7 months, with some losing their businesses which are now trying to catch up.
It is because of this reason that Omanga says it is impossible for parents to prepare within the five given days.
According to Omanga, Covid-19 has badly exposed CS Magoha’s ‘stinking incompetence’ in the education ministry.
“Many parents have been out of work for over 7 months. Businesses are trying to catch up. And you’re giving parents 5 days to prepare for reopening of schools? If there’s one thing COVID-19 has exposed in the education ministry, it is George Magoha’s stinking incompetence,” she tweeted.
