Moi tells Govt to hold off scrapping 8-4-4 system

24 February 2012, 20:17 Steve Wambugu

Former President Daniel Arap Moi warned the education sector not to hurry to scrap out the 8-4-4 system without having long term plans for the new system they are about to introduce into Kenya's education.

Speaking while in Nakuru high school where he official opened up a modern multi-million shilling purpose hall. Moi urged the government to reconsider its decision of scrapping off 8-4-4 system and instead they should conduct proper consultation with various stakeholders in the sector.

“The government really needs to rethink its idea of scrapping out the 8-4-4 system and the only way they can be able to improve on this is if they can carry out proper consultation with various stakeholders in the sector” said Moi.

The retired President further expressed out his fears with the new constitution especially the county government saying this will cripple the economy of the country and that this may throw the country into an imbalance economy growth.

“I fear the economy of this country may be in an imbalance once the county governance comes into place because different county will have not have the same growth rate.” said Moi.

The retired president praised the Nakuru High School for improving performance in national examinations and appealed to students to guard against any activities that could distract them from pursuing their education.
Commenting on the introduction of the county governments, the retired president called on the government to ensure that the new form of government does not cause disharmony and divide the country on regional lines.
