CS Magoha Launches Door-to-Door Campaign to Ensure 100 Percent Transition of 2019 KCPE Exam Candidates to Secondary School

Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha has launched a door-to-door campaign to ensure 100 percent transition of the 2019 KCPE examination candidates to secondary school.

The Form One admissions ended on Friday, 17th January, and a large number of the students had yet to report to school.

Speaking in Kibra constituency, Nairobi, when he launched the admissions, CS Magoha urged the county education officers to work with chiefs to get every 2019 KCPE exam candidate to report to secondary school.

He directed headteachers to admit all the students whether they have school fees or not.

For their part, the headteachers have urged the Ministry of Education to ensure that the capitation funds reach all the schools on time.

The head teachers, though fully supporting the 100 percent transition plan, said it would not be possible without adequate funding.

CS Magoha explained that there were more and affordable day government schools than boarding institutions and he did not see why any parents should fail to take their children to school.

Mombasa County has registered 85 percent Form One admissions due to the parents’ inability to take them to school for registration to qualify for CDF support.

“Kibra constituency has 300 candidates who are yet to join secondary schools and we will ensure they do,” CS Magoha said.

The no-nonsence CS said he would visit several other counties for the 100 percent transition campaign.
