CS Matiang'i launches form one selection exercise

The Government will provide six textbooks for Students joining form one in 2018, Cabinet Secretary for Education Fred Matiangi has revealed.

Speaking after officially launching the form one selection exercise at KICD, Matiang’i said each Form One student will get the Mathematics, English, Kiswahili, Chemistry, Biology and physics textbooks once they report to school.

He said the Ministry will on 4th of January flag off the distribution exercise promising that every school in the Country will get the books.

Matiang’i has therefore warned teachers against asking students to buy textbooks saying the Government has taken over the matter.

He said the Government has taken up the matter to reduce wastage and corruption saying so much money has been lost through corrupt procurement systems.

The CS said it was unfortunate that a book that should cost Ksh 200 would be sold for Ksh 700, over three times its cost.

And as the form one selection continues, Matiang’i said every child selected to go to a certain school must go to that school.

He said they will monitor the exercise to ensure no one is short changed.

Top student Goldalyn Kakuya, who scored 455 marks, will join her School of choice Kenya High school.

The students are expected to report to their respective schools between 9th and 12th January 2018.

Matiang’i said candidates who scored over 400 marks can now send their index number to 20042 to know which School they will join.

The ministry has also asked School heads to provide necessary details to ensure candidates can access the selection results online.

“About 993,000 students sat for against a capacity of 1 ,053,742 Form one places countrywide. We expect that some students who missed places last year will take up this extra capacity.” Matiang’i said.

63% of the Form One students will join sub-county schools and the selection exercise is expected to be complete by Friday.

TSC CEO Nancy Macharia expressed her gratitude to the teachers saying they are the unsung heroes of the country.
