After Fred Matiangi, the Cabinet Secretary for Education’s efforts to change Kenya’s education curriculum, the curriculum is approved as it will improve the quality of education in the country.

Governor Muthomi Njuki has credited the curriculum and said that teachers should embrace the change and adopt to the new curriculum, which he says will also meet the current societal demands, and make great future Kenyan generations.

Speaking at a ceremony where he awarded the best students from last year’s KCPE exams, Governor Njuki urged the teachers to always be ready for change, so as to manage this World of Competitions.

‘What I know, there is always a problem with change, but let us be ready for change. We must change the education curriculum, so that we can be able to adapt with the changing World,’ he said.

He promised that in the future, Kenyan students will be globally competitive.

The Governor through Muthomi Njuki Foundation awarded pupils who earned more than 300 marks with a metal box, shopping and Sh.1000 as pocket money.

The Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) Secretary General Wilson Sossion has also declared that teachers and education stakeholders will support the new curriculum.

‘This is a very historic moment for the education sector in this country because this is not just a curriculum but quality curriculum that can transform the lives of the students in this country and citizens of this nation,’ said Sossion.

‘Our argument has always been we should not miss any step and we must just get it right.’

‘Education remains the driving force even in the 2030 agenda, and we are happy with the next phase that this curriculum is taking and the activities that have been lined up this year satisfies our concerns as teachers,’ he added.

He further said that the new curriculum will be gradual so as to ensure that no step is left out, and an evaluation report will be developed too, and presented by the end of this year.

Fred Matiangi, the CS for Education in Kenya, informed that the Curriculum will take up to 2027 to completely phase out the 8-4-4 system.

He too called upon the teachers to get themselves familiarized with the curriculum before the thorough roll out is done.
