“We shall ensure that all Kenyan children are given equal, fair and just treatment including those from the slums and those from Arid and Semi-arid areas. We have to ensure there is affirmative action based on geographical locations in the country,” said Magoha.

According to Magoha, the new formula will help select top students nationally and place them in one pool before being placed in different national schools.

While explaining the move, Magoha noted that mixing top students from different counties will ensure all national schools in the country have a national outlook in terms of representation.

“We will take the marks of all children, then we will get the best from all those counties and place them to different national schools distributed across the nation,” stated Magoha.
