The vicious battle between Education Cabinet Secretary Prof George Magoha and Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) secretary general Wilson Sossion seem not to be ending any time soon.
KNUT has asked teachers to boycott the new curriculum and revert to the 8-4-4 curriculum. Sossion has further termed CS Magoha arrogant and intolerant.
Sossion says the attitude displayed by the education cabinet secretary George Magoha and the teacher service commission is derailing the progress of Competence Based Curriculum.
