Magoha Dismisses 'Ghost' Schools/Students Claims, Says He Can't Respond To Rumours

Ministry of Education CS George Magoha has dismissed the allegations about ghost learners and ghost schools which were earlier exposed by the Public Accountants Committee to be siphoning millions of shillings from the Kenyan government.

"We have physically counted the students and teachers so I don't want to answer to rumours," said Magoha in a video shared by Nation Africa via Twitter.

In a post which she has since pulled down, Sen. Millicent Omanga accused the Ministry of Education of creating fictitious schools and registering students who do not exist to steal taxpayers money.

Hon. Justus Kizito who is Mp Sinyalu constituency expressed his disappointments at how the investigative agents were slow in revealing the truth behind the vice.

"What surprises us is not the money lost, we are concerned about the silence of the investigative and prosecutorial agencies. Someone created these, wired and collected money from these ghost schools," said Kizito while demolishing school structures at Vikutsa Primary school which is believed to have inflated the number of students to steal from the government.

This is so unfortunate and we hope there is no truth behind it as stipulated by CS Magoha. What is your opinion on this?
