Dr. George Magoha has annoumced that there will not be any new public universities until further notice.

Speaking tough against those that have opposed his methods, Magoha has claimed that the existence of 6 universities offering duplicate courses is stretching the government resources that are meagre at the moment.

Speaking at a forum on University Education, Prof Magoha lamented that the existence of too many substandard universities is hurting the government budget allocations to Education facilities.
“I have received requests to increase the number of universities… You must apply the brakes,” said Magoha.

Barely two months since taking up the role as the Education Cabinet Secretary, Prof. George Magoha has started rubbing shoulders with the education department stake holders, with the recent war being the implementation of the new curriculum.
