Education Cabinet Secretary Prof. George Magoha has jumped into the recent spate of reactions in the relocation of Kisumu Boys High School in Kisumu where he has said that the government will not relocate the school as planned by Kisumu Governor, Anyang’ Nyongo.

While speaking in Kisumu on May 7, the CS assured students, parents and teachers that the school will not be moved to Kibos in the outskirts of the city.

Kisumu City County Governor, Prof. Anyang Nyong’o had revealed plans to move some schools out of the city in order to put the land into ‘better’ use.

“Considering the value of the place, that land needs to be useful. We need to construct an integrated urban center rather than schools. Each school has a field, a swimming pool and other amenities that have occupied large parcels of land.  Why don’t we take them to an area where schools share amenities? We do not need to have a field for each school in a town.

Five schools can have one field because they do not use it all the time. Students from school A can use it the morning and in the afternoon school B brings its students,” said Governor Nyong’o while speaking to Journalists on May 4 in Nairobi ahead of Africities Summit that is purposed to be held in Kisumu from May 17 to May 21.

Other schools within the city center that would have been affected by the relocation plans include Kisumu Girls High School and Manyatta Arabs School.
