Kapenguria Member of Parliament Samuel Moroto has faulted Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i over poor management of the education sector. Moroto urged the CS not to bring a dictatorship arm in the sector, and he suggested that he should go slow on crucial matters that can spark tension.
Speaking during a visit to Kaibos secondary school in his constituency, Moroto accused the CS over his recent remarks on politicians saying that he needs to respect elected leaders.
“Matiang’i should know that politicians are the ones who put him there. His utterances are not good for the ears of our children. He should go slow,” he said, while citing that the CS has brought many problems in the ministry.
He said that there should be discipline in learning institutions. “Education is a paramount thing in the society and should not be messed up with. We should have sanity in our schools. It’s not a good thing for children to burn schools,” he said.
Moroto cautioned politicians to stop interfering with learning institutions.
“They should present their grievances and complaints in a better manner, and we should not entertain politics in learning institutions,” said the Kapenguria MP.
The legislator pointed out that it was wrong for people to demand that a certain institution must be headed by someone from the tribe around, in relation to the wrangles surrounding the Moi University VC appointment.
