The covid-19 pandemic has placed Magoha in a tricky test; With most Kenyans using that as a base of measuring his competence. He’s been seen on social media as not clear on exactly when schools are going to be opened.
Whereas that is a delicate matter that involves further consultations and can therefore gain him a benefit of doubt, A simple process of effecting payment of B.O.M teachers salary is not something that should take almost two months.
B.O.M teachers in the country have faulted him saying that he has taken decades to approve of their payment. Worse, Magoha has been spotted in the media allegedly saying that the B.O.M teachers were paid as at 4th September 2020.
Souces on ground reveal that B.O.M teachers are yet to receive a single coin.
Wambugu Ngunjiri, who is the Vice Chairman of parliamentary committee on education has termed the move by Prof.
Magoha as a possible total disconnection between staff at Jogoo House and what the country needs at this moment. He has said that there is need for a total make-shift and reforms in the crucial ministry.
