Finally President Uhuru Breaks Silence On CBC Concerns Raised By Kenyans, Explains Its Benefits

The Ministry of Education has continued to face hurdles or, more accurately, has received several concerns from parents regarding the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC). A group of state officials recently sued to stop it from being implemented, claiming that all stakeholders in education were not consulted. During the general debate on the 76th Session of the United Nations General Assembly, however, the President of the Republic of Kenya and Commander-in-Chief of the Defense Forces, His Excellency Hon. Uhuru Mugai Kenyatta, addressed concerns about the Competency-Based Curriculum.

While speaking to other heads of state and dignitaries, the first in command avoided clearing the curriculum and several stakeholder complaints about it, opting instead to commend it. He claimed that his administration was the first to roll out and implement the new educational system.

He went on to say that the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) was positioned to handle the country's employment difficulties, and that it was one of his government's top priorities. CBC, according to the Head of State, aims to prepare the country to develop respectable and satisfying work.

"By next year, we will have reduced malnutrition among children under the age of five by 27%, built 1,000 agro-processing SMEs, and created 600,000 new employment. In addition, the contribution of the agriculture sector will increase by 48 percent "Hon. Uhuru Kenyatta, His Excellency, remarked.

He also stated that he wants every Kenyan to be aware of and proud of the high regard in which our country, Kenya, is held in the Community of Nations. His remarks come only days after Nelson Havi, President of the Law Society of Kenya (LSK), filed a case challenging the implementation of Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC).


Professor George Magoha, the Education Cabinet Secretary, has been at the forefront of defending Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC), calling it the best thing that has ever happened in the country's education sector.

President Uhuru Kenyatta has supported the Competency-Based Curriculum, stating that it will improve Kenya's competitiveness. Many parents and other stakeholders feel that CBC demands too much of their time and money, and that they don't have enough of either to help make the system work. "We've also put in place a national competency-based curriculum and universal school access, which will help our workforce compete even better," on Wednesday, Uhuru made the statement during the United Nations General Assembly's 76th session.

According to the president, one of his greatest successes is the creation of the CBC, which is focused on preparing the country to create respectable and gratifying work. "We're putting in place big preparations to get the country ready... "Kenya is endowed with a young, well-educated, and productive population that has helped the country establish one of Africa's most robust and varied economies," he remarked."A parent petitioned the High Court to halt the implementation of the Competency-Based Curriculum in basic education.

The details of the filed case against the CBC have been revealed, which is good news.

The details of the filed case about Competency-Based Curriculum have been revealed, which is good news. This comes at a time when the ministry of education is working nonstop to guarantee that the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) is performing as expected by education stakeholders. The Petitioner claimed that the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) is very expensive for ordinary parents in the Competency-Based Curriculum case, which was filed by lawyer Esther Awuor Adero Angawa, who will also be represented in court by the President of the Law Society of Kenya (LSK), Nelson Havi. 

Teachers Service Commission (TSC), Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT), Ministry of Education, and Kenya Institute Of Curriculum Development are among the respondents (KICD). In this regard, the ministry of education is hopeful that the child's entire curriculum will be finished by tomorrow.


Confusion is now rife among P1 teachers who are awaiting deployment.

The Teachers Service Commission had started deploying P1 practicing teachers who had received a C+ in Form 4 and were pursuing a Bachelor of Education in Secondary Education at universities. In the year 2019, the deployment began. TSC has been advertising 1000 places for these teachers who qualify every year since then. The third group is excitedly anticipating their letters, which have begun to arrive in certain counties. Teachers on the verge of being assigned to secondary schools have been thrown into even more disarray. The TPD module training has been rolled out by TSC. Beginning this holiday, instructors from both elementary and secondary schools will be taught. One crucial point is now perplexing those expecting deployments in the near future.

These instructors are now working primarily in primary schools before being assigned to senior schools. They will register as primary school teachers for the TPD modules, pay fees and other materials, and receive training as primary school instructors.

This will continue until they are deployed, which may take up to two years. Unfortunately, when they are assigned to secondary schools, they will begin their training as secondary school teachers from scratch, unless they are teaching common courses for both levels. TSC's plans to marry the certificates and renew their licenses are yet unknown. Hopefully, as time passes, everything will become clearer.


The Competency-Based Curriculum is extremely beneficial, and all parents should support it because it provides students with a wide range of abilities. Furthermore, learning is becoming more engaging as students increasingly alter their surroundings and employ technology to enhance their learning.

Furthermore, KICD has trained a large number of teachers who will understand and implement the curriculum.

According to credible sources, if CBC is successful, primary school headteachers and high school principals will have a chance to control millions of shillings. Furthermore, primary school principals will be the first to benefit from the good fortune, as there will be fewer students than in the 8.4.4. system.
