The Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) will succeed at whatever cost, Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha has said.

“I want to thank God for giving me this opportunity to lead the process of CBC and I want to state here publicly that with God in control, CBC shall succeed,” said Prof Magoha on Wednesday.

TALENT

He added: “CBC shall synergize the talent if it is discovered early instead of waiting until the tail end of the learning process of children.”

Prof Magoha was speaking at Kabarak University when he presided over the closing ceremony of the 93rd edition of the Kenya National Music festivals.

The CS, who praised the level of music standards in the country, challenged the youth to appreciate local music.

 “Listen to our own music, I enjoyed the Kikuyu traditional cultural dance from Karima Girls in Nyandarua County and it reminded me how we used to dance for Mzee Jomo Kenyatta,” said Prof Magoha.

He urged parents to help to change the mindset of our youth to appreciate local music.

He told the Youth: “It doesn’t make sense to give such a splendid representation and you go back to your room and listen to another person’s music.”

MISSING LINK

“There is a serious missing link which we must address as a nation before our beautiful culture goes into oblivion,” he added.
