It Will Be Difficult for the Government to Achieve 100% Transition - Maiyo

The Kenyan government through the Ministry of Education has been working closely with the Ministry of Interior and Coordination of National Government to ensure that all 2020 KCPE candidates join secondary schools. In simple terms the government want to achieve 100% transition from Primary to Secondary schools across the country. Although the country is trying to achieve this, the recent report by the Ministry of Education has shown that around 177,000 pupils have not joined the secondary schools.

Yesterday the Cabinet Secretary of Education Professor George Magoha said that he will be moving from county to county in coordination with the Ministry of Interior and Coordination of National Government to ensure that all 2020 KCPE candidates join secondary schools.

The Parents Association chairman Mr. Nicholas Maiyo has clearly stated the problems facing the 100% transition initiative in the country. Speaking on Mjadala Wa Jambo Kenya, Maiyo said that lack of school fees have forced some pupils to stay home for long thus losing their positions in the secondary schools they were placed. In addition to that, Maiyo also said that cultural beliefs especially in Maasai community have forced the candidates to stay in seculution areas for long.

Lastly, Mr. Maiyo also stated that insecurity in places like Isiolo and Baringo have led to the closure of some schools. This makes it difficult for schools in such areas to achieve 100% transition as per the demands by the government. What is now remaining is to see whether the government will achieve it or not.
