Govt to vet all preachers who teach students

17 February 2016, 07:59 Mahommed Yusuf

Nairobi - Education Cabinet Secretary, Fred Matiang’i has called upon any preacher willing to preach in any learning institution to be vetted.

Matiang’i noted that as much as freedom of worship is guaranteed, it should be practiced with caution, saying that it is important for students to be shielded from destructive religious ideologies.

He also expressed the need to review religious education curriculum so that it can impart inter-faith values of tolerance, communal living and celebrate diversities that define the nation and the global environment.

Speaking during the closing ceremony of a two-day workshop for Education Practitioners at the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD), Matiang’i asked religious leaders and parents to work together to eradicate radicalization of students.

“We must reject the notion that radicalism has anything to do with Islam, but a criminal ideology,” he noted, saying that Muslims have also suffered from the thinking that radicalism provoked.

However, the National Chairman of SUPKEM, Prof Abdulghafur El Busaidy in support of Matiangi's sentiments, said the proposed curriculum will promote the basic understanding that all religions are, in essence, interpretations of divine revelation.
