Cabinet Secretary Prof George Magoha now says he doesn’t care about noise makers around the country.
Speaking during a graduation event organised at the United States International University USIU last Friday November 21st, Magoha remarked that he was like an eagle who flies above the rest.
He noted that what helped him in life was the choice to sharpen his skills rather than just focus on educational papers.
“You know an eagle is a bird that flies above the others and I am proud to say that I am one of them.
“So when people are making noise down there, I stay up and just look at them,” Magoha stated.
According to the CS, employers will be much interested in those who can handle issues practically rather than academic papers. He added that in today’s world, one is not successful from the number of degrees he has collected form school but sucess is measured by what one can do when given an opportunity.
He also took the opportunity to challenge the graduants to think about creating employment and not getting employed terming such thoughts as ‘too mediocre’.
“I want to say that on behalf of the government, we are happy to see the youth graduating. We are persuading parents to take children to school as we are expanding TVETs,” he said.
Before winding up his address, he reminded Kenyans on his success at the Kenya National Examination Council KNEC. He recounted how he handled exam leakages across the country bringing the mess which had ‘eaten up’ the important sector to a sudden stop.
At the moment, the CS is facing a major challenge on how to handle Covid-19 pandemic which has interfered with school calendar 2020.
It will be interesting to see how he will successful handle this development going forward.
