Leaders from the North Eastern region today held a consultative meeting with the Ministry of Education and the Teachers Service Commission over the worsening status of Education in the region.

Led by Majority leader Aden Duale, the leaders agreed with the Education decision makers that additional teachers as well as untrained teachers be employed through the Board of Management of both primary & secondary schools in the three counties of the former North Eastern province.

“We also agreed that this year, KNEC will administer the Kenya National Examinations in NEP just like the rest of the country” said Duale adding that teacher training colleges in the country will also admit 500 students from the region in the next three years.

This, he said will ensure availability of local teachers in the future.

The meeting was chaired by Deputy President William Ruto.

One the same note, resident of the three counties of Garissa, Wajir and Mandera held simultaneous processions to the offices of County Commissioners in the respective areas where they presented a raft of demands and recommendations over the matter.

Led by local activists, the placard waving students, parents, activists and other stakeholders in the education sector called on the government to arrest the situation before it goes out of hand.
