Law Society of Kenya president Nelson Havi has said he will challenge the competency based curriculum in court.

Via Twitter on Thursday, Havi said he will be filing a petition next week challenging the CBC.

"I have heard your cries parents, guardians and teachers. The petition challenging CBC will be filed in Court next week," he said.

"The education system in Kenya should not be an expensive, inefficient and ineffective experiment with our children and their future as is our leadership."

Some parents have expressed concerns about the expense of the new curriculum which is to replace the 8-4-4 system.

Their anger mostly due to the many books they have been asked to buy for their children who recently started the first term of the 2021 academic calendar.

In August,  the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development through a press release clarified that CBC has nothing to do with parents being asked to buy a collection of books in the guise that they are related to the curriculum.

Teachers are expected to make rational decisions on what is required to aid learning, depending on where a school is located.
