Alas! Why Kisii County is opposed to the new Ministry of Education co-curricular activity Circular

The recent circular from the Ministry of Education on restricting co-curricular activity to weekend and school holidays has caused unnecessary uproar from two counties in Gusiiland Nyamira and Kisii with communication form the top county offices saying that will interfere with their faith.

The two counties are predominantly Christian regions and therefore having sports events moved to weekends will affect their religion news that have not been taken in lightly.

Masembe Machuka, speaking on behalf of Governor James Ongwae said the circular was affecting them most due to their faith.

“Weekends in this area are meant for Sabbath and Sunday school. Something we’re not going to compromise. The Teachers’ Service Commission ought to have consulted before drafting such diminishing directives,” The governor’s public Relations Officer told Xsport.

Machuka said the region have for a long time observed religion seriously such that no other events are slated for weekends about from church.

“As Abagusii we don’t bury the death during weekends. Virtually all ceremonies are done on Fridays. That is how serious that matter is,” he concluded.

The County further says they will be soon launching clinics for virtually all sports in efforts to raise the stands of the sport in the area.
