Magoha Clears The Air On Principals Losing Powers To Finance Managers As He Outlines Plans For Exam

The CS for education Professor George Magoha has today broken his Silence on the issue of sending finance mangers to schools.

There were fears amongst school Principals last month when rumours about the ministry's plans to send finance managers to Schools we're spreading.

Teachers unions together with Principals castigated such a move saying that it will increase gorvenment expenditure for no good reason and instead bursers should be trained to handle finances.

Now in what seems to be good music to the ears of Principals and Headteachers, Magoha has dismissed such a move saying a professional can't just work under a meer financial manager.

"How do you get a professional to be managed by a finance officer?" Asked Magoha as quoted by citizen TV.

This will be good news to heads of institutions who were staring at possibile loss of authority to incur expenditure.

The CS was talking today in a meeting to plan for KCSE administion where elaborate plans have been put in place for the running of the National Exams.

The CS said that only TSC teachers will be involved in Manning the Exams from invigilators to supervisors rulling out the use of BoM employed teachers.

Over 270000 teachers will be involved in supervising, invigilating and marking the Examinations.

The exams are set to begin on March 22 for KCPE which will run for three days and thereafter ushering in KCSE.

Over 1.8 milion candidates will sit for the exams Countrywide.
