Raila and Matiang’i broker Prof. Magoha’s appointment amidst resistance from DP Ruto


ODM leader Raila Odinga and super minister Fred Matiang’i successfully brokered for the appointment of distinguished Prof. George Magoha as the new Education Cabinet Secretary amidst strong resistance from the deputy president William Ruto.

Ruto had in spirited attempts tried to block the appointment of Kenya National Examination Council Chairman to the cream portfolio which saw his predecessor Amina Muhammed moved to Sports left vacant following unceremonious sacking of Rashid Echesa.

News of Prof Magoha’s appointment has caused shivers in the education sector given his Matiang’i style of operations.
