Garisa governor was control of education

Postby Talo alle udaa » Thu Feb 06, 2014 9:03 pm

Recently, exam results came back nationally ranking somali regions as the lowest in Kenya. The Garissa county governor threatened to expel teachers who are under performing. He is trying to get his local government in control of education.
Two governors have threatened to push for devolution of education through a referendum if the government fails to decentralise the function.

Garissa governor Nathif Jama and his Lamu counterpart Issa Timamy said devolving services without including education was irrelevant.

For a county to develop, it had to manage matters touching on education, they said in Masalani Town, Ijara sub-county.

“It is local leaders who understand what the problem in our secondary and primary schools is,” said Mr Jama.

He said schools from the counties had been ranked last in the national examinations for the last 50 years.

This is a clear indication that challenges facing education could not be addressed from Nairobi, they added.

The county chiefs said that the Council of Governors was engaging the national government to ensure that education was devolved to counties.

But if that option fails, they will push for a referendum on the issue.

Dr Timamy said arid areas faced unique challenges that can only be addressed by counties.

Glad to see Governor Nadiif is delivering for Garissa....most nfd mps have been useless in-terms bringing back development to the region, the new county system seems to be bringing more focus on local governance.
