Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha note that schools infrastructure development will be done to allow smooth learning.  The government will push for a smooth transition of students from primary to secondary schools. Already the government has allocated Sh 8.2 billion in expanding and improving schools’ infrastructures in 30 counties.

Speaking in Mombasa during an annual forum with security bosses across the country, Prof Magoha said the development in schools will include the construction of classrooms, laboratories and toilets. The conference was at the Sarova Whitesands beach hotel.

Prof Magoha said 962 new and fully equipped classrooms to be constructed in 561 schools. 785 laboratories and 1,843 toilets will be constructed in 1,783 learning institutions. 60 special need primary schools and 4 secondary schools will also be constructed.

“We are committed to this. It will be done because it is the government's plan,” he said.

"We have a lot of primary schools but there are no secondary schools. People who own private schools also seem not to have an interest in investing in secondary schools. It appears to me like they are interested in business than education. Please ask those people to consider putting up secondary schools," Prof Magoha told regional and county commissioners.
