Former Education CS Hints He Would Head Back To Classroom After Missing Ruto's Cabinet Slot

Speaking on October 10, the former vice chancellor of the University of Nairobi (UoN) disclosed that after his term at the Ministry of Education was over, he would return to the classroom.

However, the CS withheld information about the institution he was joining and whether or not negotiations had even begun.

The CS worked as a medical lecturer at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital and as a urological surgery lecturer at UoN before joining the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) and the Cabinet.

"I'm returning to my surgical clinic as well because I want to live my life as freely as possible. I feel like I've contributed enough to society "He declared.

The departing CS, who had expressed interest in taking on the position of CS in Ruto's administration, said he enjoyed mentoring and teaching young medical professionals.

The CS claims that his stint at the Ministry of Education was successful based on the initiatives he unveiled and the policies he implemented to prevent exam leaks.

The adoption of the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC), started by the previous president Uhuru Kenyatta, was one of the initiatives he claimed credit for.

In this sense, he commended Ruto for establishing a task committee to examine CBC as opposed to dumping it.

The outgoing CS offered his services to Ruto's administration in September 2022, saying that he would be a better suited to oversee the CBC's implementation because the first cohort was scheduled to transfer to junior secondary in January 2023.

Then he said, "I will say yes if we are thinking along the same lines, if he offers me the support I need, and if it is God's will."

Another group of parents pushed Ruto to keep Magoha on board because, in their opinion, she was essential to the success of the new curriculum.
