President William Ruto was informed of an impending crisis in January 2023 if his deputy order to build Competency-Based Curriculum laboratories is upheld.
Members of Parliament and Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) officials pleaded with the Head of State to act before Grade Six pupils transfer to Junior secondary during an interview on Tuesday, December 6.
Omboko Milemba chairman of KUPPET and MP for Emuhaya believed that in order to effectively implement the DP's directive, the government needed to increase its allocation of the Constituency Development Fund (NG-CDF).
He emphasized that the CDF funding was insufficient to build labs in every school and urged the government to resume former President Uhuru Kenyatta project.
The government must provide funding for the cats in order for the MPs to construct labs.
Do not disregard the secondary schools that were constructed. They ought to be made available for use. The use of the classes shouldn't be restricted by a barrier He declared.
Mark Nyamita a member of parliament from Uriri charged that the government had abdicated its duty.
He acknowledged that the administration had permitted the Grade Seven students to utilize the labs at nearby high schools but he pointed out that the decision was not appropriate.
I have more than 100 primary schools for instance. Let's say I have to spend Ksh3.5 million to construct a lab. I will therefore require Ksh350 million which is insufficient.
