Nairobi - Retired president Daniel Moi has cautioned against the scrapping of the 8-4-4 education system.
Moi said its wrong for the government to scrap the system which he initiated saying that the system is the best in Africa.
Speaking Tuesday at Kiptilit secondary school in Rongai constituency during a prize giving day,Moi said scrapping 8-4-4 will water down the Kenyan education system.
He said what the government should be doing is to strengthen the system instead of killing it.
"Why should you kill something that has helped so many people,?" He posed.
"Instead of killing 8-4-4 the government should make it better by hiring more teachers and equipping schools in the country so that they can effectively compete with private schools,"he said.
