The notice dated December 15, 2023, further indicates that the CS will be holding a meeting with regional and county directors of Education at the same venue.

“The agenda of the meeting will be implementation of education programmes at the field offices and schools across the country,” reads the notice issued by Dr Elyas Abdi, the Director General at the State Department for Basic Education.

A total of 1,406,557 candidates sat their KCPE exams this year.While releasing KCPE results last month, CS Machogu noted that 8,525 candidates scored over 400 marks, representing 0.60 per cent of this year’s class, while 352,782 candidates had between 300 and 399 marks, which is 24.92 per cent of the cohort.

At the same time, the 200-299 bracket had the most candidates at 658,278, representing 48.49 per cent, while 38,3025 others scored between 100 and 199 marks, which is 27.05 per cent of the total number of candidates.Those with less than 99 marks were 2,060, accounting for 0.15 per cent of the lot.

The Cabinet Secretary, however, appealed to the universities to exercise patience as the government works at systematically addressing their financial difficulties in line with the Presidential Working Party on Education Reforms Report’s recommendations.

“Allow me to assure you that the Ministry will progressively work towards resolving all your concerns in an environment of dialogue so we ensure that access to quality education remains unimpeded,” the CS said.

Machogu further challenged universities to collaborate closely with industries to produce graduates with the right skill sets demanded by the market.

He said this is necessary as the country transitions from the 8-4-4 system to the Competency-Based Curriculum with the key focus on tackling youth unemployment.
