North Imenti MP Rahim Dawood has said the government should set aside enough funds for the Competency Based Curriculum.

He said the CBC has taken many years to change yet legislators who are stakeholders in the education sector are not aware of how they will implement the curriculum.

“We do not know if we will add new classrooms or it will use the ones that are already in place. The curriculum needs more consultation to be implemented well,” he said.

“We should not change the education system and take many years to come up to par and let it go. CDF currently as it is cannot fund everything in the education sector.” 

Speaking on Monday, the legislator said that enrolment of students to ensure 100 per cent transition has taken many students to school yet there are not enough classes.

In politics, the legislator welcomed all presidential candidates in Meru.

“I welcome Musalia Mudavadi to Meru next week and all the other leaders. The people are the ones who will decide,” Dawood said.

On the formation of a political party for Meru by Governor Kiraitu Murungi, Dawood said he will align himself with what the people want and will wait to see what path he will chart.

“In the 2013 election in Meru, APK that folded under Jubilee got two national assembly legislative seats and TNA got five legislative seats if APK  can be revived then TNA can also be revived we do not know,” Dawood said.

On Rift Valley insecurity, he said the national police reservist should be given back firearms.
