Magoha is not out of the hook yet for insulting and humiliating Dr. Gitonga Mbaka, the CDE Uasin Gishu County. In a new twist, Mbaka’s bark yard, Tharaka Nithi County, has joined in demanding an apology from the CS. Tharaka Nithi county KUPPET Officials told Magoha to apologize to Dr. Mbaka and the Meru council of elders or get ready for curses from the Meru community.
“Professor Magoha must also apologize to the Meru council of elders for insulting Dr, Mbaka,who hails from Tharaka Nithi County and is a member of the council”said Patrick Gitonga, Tharaka Nithi County KUPPET executive secretary. Additionally, Mr. Gitonga says that Magoha should resign.
“We are also going to call upon Njuri Ncheke so that they can may be call on the minister to apologize, failure to which, he will be cursed the Meru way'”
In his feeling, the county director or teachers did not deserve any blame for the untidiness of the school since the ministry has not even released money to pay the support staff’s salaries.
KNUT Tharaka Nithi branch accused Magoha of being a lone ranger, who never consults other stake holders in any matter, but bulldozes them to follow his one- man decisions.
In a statement that seems to contradict national KNUT secretary general Wilson Sossion, KNUT Tharaka Nithi branch officials feel that Prof Magoha disrespects the teaching fraternity.
“We will mobilize teachers to lobby for the removal of the CS if he will not have resigned or apologized to the teachers by January,” said Ndia Gwatia, a KNUT Tharaka Nithi county branch officlal.
On the other hand, the professor has insisted that he was in the line of his duty and cannot apologize to a person who failed to execute his duties. He cannot change the way he does his things to satisfy Mbaka’s sympathisers.
