Kenya's fast-rising lawyer Esther Ang'awa has now come out boldly to warn parents against media houses whom she thinks are being used to push the newly controversial Competency-Based Curriculum.
From her online post, Esther Ang'awa who together with the president of the Law Society of Kenya Nelson Havi are fighting the new curriculum at the High Court, has revealed that there is something unnecessary which the Ministry of Education together with the KICD are doing behind closed doors with various media houses. This is mainly to make parents who are opposing CBC to feel okay with the it despite being unfriendly to them and their children in real sense.
She has posted the document made by the Standard Media Group calling for their participation in a live panel discussion that is likely to be held at Daystar University.
And from the letter, it is indicated that for the discussion to happen, a whopping amount of one million Kenyan shillings will be charged for the participation cost.
And according to Esther who has completely failed to understand why a discussion in CBC is being monetized, this could be one way of preventing them from engaging in that discussion and inform parents more on the negative effects of CBC, something which may completely lead to the fall of the new curriculum which parents have been striking against.
