“We shall not be used to validate an illegal policy that is shrouded in mystery. Already the minister says the train left the station. Why engage a reverse gear by asking KNUT to grace launch of CBC policy framework? This ought to have been done before the train left”KNUT’s tweet.

“KNUT shall not be used to validate an illegal Policy whose development surrounded in mystery, recalling that your very office purported to have participated in the development of Sessional Paper No.1 of 2019 on a policy framework for Reforming Education and Training for Sustainable Development in Kenya where you claimed National curriculum policy was included to guide the implementation of the competency Based Curriculum (CBC) reform process in Kenya. Please note that the Sessional Paper Is before Parliament”.
