Schools urged to tackle cases of indiscipline among learners

12 March 2014, 10:25

Nairobi - Education Cabinet Secretary Jacob Kaimenyi, has called upon school management to act on on cases of drug abuse among learners and wastage of school hours.

He also decried the use of the school children in doing menual jobs like fetching of water, saying that the time spent on such work could be used in doing school work.

Kaimenyi made the remarks when he addressed Action by Churches Together (ACTS) Alliance Consultation on Africa and Middle East at the All African Churches Conference in Nairobi.

He commended the church urging it to continue upholding its place in society as a custodian of moral values.

“I appeal to you all to ensure preservation of and respect for the indigenous positive values among communities. The church needed to uphold its position as the custodian of societal values in view of the changing global trend,” he said.

The Cabinet Secretary commended work done by ACT alliance in humanitarian response, development and advocacy.

General of the National Council of Churches of Kenya (NCCK) Rev. Canon Peter Karanja attended the event.
