Newly appointed Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha was this week shocked to find empty desks at the Ministry’s offices and vowed to get rid of lazy staff.

In a video doing rounds on social media, Magoha, who was in the company of top officials at the ministry, stated that laxity in his docket will have far-reaching consequences and it is something he will not tolerate.

“People have to sit up and work, otherwise I will remove them. We will get a team that is willing to work,” he said.

He called for seriousness at the ministry and noted that staff need to work without supervision.

“I am not here as a boss. I am one of you but we have to work. If I start coming here at 10am, what do you think people will do? They will start coming here after 10am,” he said.

The former University of Nairobi Vice- Chancellor is considered by many to be the answer to the country’s education struggles and if his previous record is anything to go by, then many expect change.

On Thursday Interior CS Fred Matiang’i congratulated him on his new role and promised to give him all the assistance he needs.

“I hereby take this opportunity to congratulate new Education Cabinet Secretary Prof @George_A_Magoha for his appointment.

“On my part and on behalf of my colleagues we shall support you as we continue to work together and deliver as one team as required by H.E Uhuru Kenyatta,” said Matiang’i.
