Professor Magoha not resigning after public spat



Education CS George Magoha.

Professor Magoha is a distinguished scholar widely known in the corridors of academics in Kenya.

Magoha is the current Cabinet Secretary in the Education ministry. Known for his no nonsense attitude, the gigantic professor speaks his mind anytime if need be.

Magoha found himself on the wrong side of Kenyans when a video of him abusing an education official went viral.

In the video that has been doing rounds on social sites for quite some time now, Magoha is seen verbally attacking the elderly county director of Education for apparently failing on his duties.

The events led to a public outcry from Kenyans and the Kenya National Union Of Teachers who called for the immediate resigning of the cabinet secretary. Many wondered why the established professor chose to act the way he did to the officer.

Magoha has now come out to state that he is not in any way planning to resign over the same. He has insisted that he won’t tolerate shoddy officers in his ministry. This hasn’t gone well with most Kenyans KNUT tightens on advising President Kenyatta to sack the Cs for the sake of sanity in the Ministry.

The Public Service Commission has since stripped him off human resource power. This is not the first time the Cabinet Secretary is rubbing shoulders the wrong way with Kenyans, having done so twice in Parliament in full glare of cameras.

With a looming cabinet reshuffle, Kenyans are waiting to see how President Kenyatta is going to handle the CS with one of the longest CV’s in town.
