President Uhuru Kenyatta has urged Kenyans to to reject leaders who are alwaqys complaining.
Speaking in Mombasa at the 45th annual school heads meeting, Mr Kenyatta touched on many things to do with the new curriculum and state of education sector in the country.
“We are reforming our education system to make it fit for the 21st Century. The CBC seeks to identify and nurture every learners potential as opposed to routine memorization of content,” he said.
“The pandemic has also created opportunities for us to re-imagine our education system and transform it to meet future challenges,” he added.
Honouring teachers, President Kenyatta said they played a big role during the pandemic and Kenya owe them a lot.
“Our teachers tirelessly facilitated learning through the Covid period through a variety of measures. Indeed today Kenya owes you a debt of gratitude for remaining true to your calling despite the disrupted learning environment,” Uhuru said.
Touching on politics, he criticized his Deputy William Ruto and opponents for always complaining instead of solving problems.
“Pigieni wenye watakuja kelele lakini mimi mnipigie makofi kwa yale nimefanya. Mimi nimewasaidia jameni.” This country needs problem solvers, not problem talkers,” he said.
