Professor Magoha now says he is not going to succumb to pressure and empty theatrics from the public and apologize for allegedly insulting a teacher.
In a statement that has earned him criticisms from Kenyans,defiant Magoha insists that the teacher in question has no manners and deserved whatever befell him on the fateful day.
“Let me make it very clear. I will not apologize to that teacher.Anyambe huko!If he has any issues with the ministry of education, let’s battle it in the corridors of law and not on social media platforms” Magoha remarked.
Over the weekend, Prof Magoha’s remarks elicited backlash from a section of Kenyans online, many faulting him over how he addressed the senior official.
The CS had toured the region to inspect the progress of delivery of desks and preparedness of schools in accommodating learners while observing the Ministry of Health protocols. He had made a stop at Langas Primary where he was displeased by the evident lack of hygiene.
At this point, Magoha unleashed his wrath on Gitonga who wanted to hand him a report.
“The situation on the ground is not good,” Magoha is heard saying in the video. The elderly education director tried to explain why the school was in that state but a visibly angry Magoha was far from impressed.
“I am not talking about a report, I am talking about what is here on the ground,” Magoha said to the officer.
Maiyo, however, explained that construction of some classes was ongoing in the school and that some materials were being unloaded and that the dirt would be cleared once the exercise was done.
