Campus Vibe – 8-4-4 might just be a thing of the past

Say goodbye to this tired system

A high stakes meeting held on Monday at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre has raised a few eyebrows. The summit where the future of the 8-4-4 system was discussed sought to make big changes in this obsolete way of learning. Reportedly a new, and rather confusing 2-6-3-3-3 system is to be adopted by the government.

New syllabuses and subjects are set to take effect and this also raised concerns about the cost of completely changing the education system. XNEWS reports, students will pursue games, performing and visual arts while social science options will be languages and literature, humanities and business studies. The third option will have pure and applied sciences, engineering and technical studies.

Miss World Nyamira County, Mercy Mokeira’s death shakes country

Mercy Mokeira’s untimely death has sparked many discussions online one major one has to do with Kenyan hypocrisy. The beauty queen was thrust to the limelight in a negative way after she took some pictures with winners of a pageant held at Langata Womens Prison last year. 23-year-old Mokeira who was a student at Kenyatta University, clearly made enough of an impact to the people she knew that her loss was felt greatly.

Her father spoke to eDaily and gave a statement that expressed his shock at the suddenness of her death, “My daughter Mercy Mokeira’s health problem began when she returned to Nairobi from a function in Tanzania mid December 2016.” He continues, “On Saturday morning, I was yet to receive the results [of a blood test]. Her sister told me Mercy Mokeira had woken up well but she was complaining of excessive body heat. At around 4:00pm Saturday, her sister called me on phone while crying and told me that Mokeira had not been talking and was pronounced dead at 11:30am. I called a doctor at North Kinangop Hospital who confirmed the heartbreaking news.”

She was passionate about peace, helping the needy having been involved in a number of charity activities and had shown some interest in politics.
