George Magoha Nominated as new Education CS

Prof George Magoha’s nomination as Education Cabinet Secretary was long overdue, teachers in Mt Kenya have said following the announcement by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

The President’s executive order on Friday morning put Mr Magoha in charge of the ministry previously headed by Amina Mohamed. She took over in the Sports ministry from Mr Rashid Echesa, who was fired.

Members of the Mt Kenya Teachers’ Forum later urged Parliament to approve Prof Magoha’s nomination, saying teachers believe he will be zealous.
