Education Cabinet Secretary Professor George Magoha has faulted individuals who failed to implement the Government’s laptop project that would have salvaged the current situation.
The Cabinet Secretary who was attending the start of a two-day stakeholders meeting on university reforms challenged institutions of higher learning to invest in online classes and address challenges of funding.
It is at this meeting that CS Magoha took a swipe at individuals who he says failed to ensure the implementation of laptops for all school-going children which would have come in handy in ensuring learning continues as the nation battles the COVID-19 pandemic.
CS Magoha challenged universities to invest in virtual learning to ensure learning continues.
The Education Cabinet Secretary also took issue with what he termed as the flawed funding formula for Universities calling on the stakeholders to deliberate on sustainable financing of the institution as opposed to over-reliance on government financing.
This comes two days after the CS announced that 3000 private schools are set to benefit from a Ksh7 billion concessional loan from the state to support infrastructural development in readiness for schools reopening in January 2021.
