“Nobody is Perfect” Remorseful Magoha Says After Demotion

A day after he was stripped of some powers, the seemingly regretful Education CS Prof George Magoha has attributed his recent bullying of an education officer to imperfection.

Magoha, in what appeared to be a poor attempt to apologize, stated that nobody is perfect and urged all public officials to do their jobs effectively.
The embattled CS, who was speaking on Friday after inspecting the newly procured desks at Yumbisye Secondary School in Kitui Central, said practicing Christianity was what was driving him and that everybody was prone to doing some mistakes.
“I would like to state without any fear of contradiction that in my life, which is not very young and not very old, I have learned that nobody is perfect. If anybody has seen a perfect person, you should tell me that person. What drives me is practicing Christianity,” communicated remorseful Magoha.

At the same time, the CS urged Kenyans to do their best in all endeavors they are undertaking or bestowed upon them, adding that they should leave the rest to God.
His remarks came a day after he was stripped of a key function, that of human resource, which was transferred to his PS, Belio Kipsang.
The CS, who is now facing a bleak future at the ministry, might soon surrender more powers to his PS, with the recent ‘demotion’  signalling acknowledgement from the highest levels of government that Prof Magoha lacks a quality that is essential to discharge a key component of his functions as CS.
This could be a clear signal that the appointing authority could soon move him entirely out of the docket, kick him out of the cabinet or even fire him altogether.
Insider reports now claim that the Head of State was not pleased by Magoha’s conduct during the visit to Uasin Gishu.
According to reports from the Standard Newspaper, President Uhuru is seemingly also losing confidence in Magoha for taking long to solve the education crisis in the country.
Magoha has come under intense public criticism days after his ‘Mjinga’ slur on Uasin Gishu County Director of Education Gitonga Mbaka, when he visited Langas Primary School in Eldoret.
