High Court Judge Eric Ogola issued the order directing the two institutions, through the Attorney-General, to file their response to the application filed by university lecturer Eric Mugambi.

Mr Mugambi, who teaches mathematics at Technical University of Mombasa, is also seeking an order preventing the ministry and KICD or their employees from implementing the scheduled review in basic education.

ORDERS
He is seeking the orders pending hearing and determination of an application and a petition he has filed at the High Court in Mombasa.

Justice Ogola declined to grant the interim orders being sought by Mr Mugambi until all the parties are heard.

Counsel for AG, Mr Richard Ngari, said he needed more time to respond to the application by Mr Mugambi.

“The prayers being sought are weighty, we need to get sufficient time to prepare ourselves,” Mr Ngari, who also pleaded with the court not to issue the interim orders, said.

CURRICULUM
He urged the court to take judicial notice that the repeat presidential election had altered the school calendar.
