“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.
