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.
