A House team has approved President Uhuru Kenyatta’s nominee for State Department for Implementation of Curriculum reforms Prof Fatuma Chege.

The Education Committee chaired by Busia MP Florence Mutua on Wednesday tabled the Committee’s report approving the nomination of Chege who led the taskforce on the transition from the 8-4-4 to the 2-6-3-3 education system.

Under the 2-6-3-3 system introduced with the competency-based curriculum, learners spend two years in pre-primary, six years in primary, three years in junior secondary, and another three years in senior secondary school.

The Committee also approved the nomination of Jamleck Muturi as chairperson of the Teachers Commission and Timon Oyucho as the member of TSC.

“Taking into consideration the findings of the Committee, this House approves Jamleck Muturi (TSC chair)” and Timon Oyucho a member of the Commission,” Mutua said.

Until his appointment, Jamleck served as Embu County CEC in charge of Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Cooperatives.

He said he will resign from the county position if considered for the Commission job.

MPs will today debate the Committee’s report and take a vote.

If approved by the house, the names will be taken to President Uhuru for formal appointment.
