Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha has asked teachers to serve students from their schools wholeheartedly.
Speaking on Tuesday during the For One placement process in Mombasa, Magoha said that teachers should discharge their duties in a Godly manner, adding that he will 'go to heaven direct' because he has discharged his duties in a Godly manner.
“I will go to heaven direct. If you have doubts, come I'll tell you what to do,” he said.
He reminded teachers not to prioritize money and other things over the education of their children.
He warned parents against forcing children to cram their examinations to get good grades saying that the intelligence of an individual is based on the way he or she is raised.
Magoha went on to urge parents to remain supportive of their children throughout their education as well as careers.
“Don't make a child cram for results; let them use their brain. I can still describe to you the life history of Napoleon Bonaparte which I studied 50 years ago in European history," he added.
He also defended the ministry against alleged biased in Form One selection, saying the process was transparent and balanced.
