“Despite a lot of noise from the busybodies, we are actually very focused on our children. In Nairobi, for example, we have registered about 27 primary schools that have satisfied our situation to convert to junior secondary schools,” he stated.
Declaration marks a significant milestone since the CS authorized private schools to build more classrooms to accommodate students transitioning from Grade 6 to Junior Secondary School in January 2023 at the beginning of July.
