Speaking at Kangaru School in Embu County during the inaugural Educational Day for Manyatta sub-County, Machogu said Sh2 million had been set aside, following the president’s directive that the examiners be paid.

He added that the government will ensure that all outstanding dues to Knec examiners and suppliers are settled.

“Moving forward, the ministry will prioritize prompt payment to examiners to avoid delays again. These delays were occasioned by a cash crunch at the council, which has been sorted out,” he said.

Machogu also said the government had started paying contractors for the construction of the 1,950 Competence Based Curriculum (CBC) classes to the tune of Sh2.5 billion.

“Those who have not received their dues yet should consult and liaise with their County Directors of Education,” he said.

“This will be a game changer in shaping the future career paths of these young minds,” Machogu said.

Mukunji, who is rooting for a return to the ranking of schools, said the Education programme would be an annual event that to award the best-performing schools and students academically.

“The ranking of schools in national examinations will bring back the spirit of competition, which is good for learners,” he noted.
