CS Machogu said that they are more focused on how to ensure smooth 100 percent transition in all schools in the country. The remarks by CS Ezekiel Machogu may mean good news for the parents if the abolition of boarding system in primary schools is omitted. Boarding schools are very important to learners who face child abuse at home. In addition, they help pupils to be safe from toxic families.
