The national government through the Ministry of Education has been urged to deal with the shortage of Education Officers in Chesumei Sub County which was newly constituted in March last year. This is according to Chesumei Sub County Education Officer Mr David Mwandihi who said there is a current shortage in the Sub County.
Mwandihi revealed that the Sub County is still new as it was officially constituted on 6th March 2017 and doesn’t have sufficient staff. He added other positions that need attention include quality assurance and standards officers, clerks and secretaries to ensure the education sector runs smoothly.
The Education Officer narrated that before securing an office inside Chemundu Secondary School, he once conducted his affairs under a tree in the Deputy County Commissioner’s premise in Chemundu and hopes that the government will erect an education office in the region soon.
He further lauded efforts made by the Chesumei DCC Mr Ngura Mwamachi along with other security team members in providing security during the exams period last year which enabled the exams to run smoothly as there were no cases of irregularities.
