Education CS George Magoha asked to investigate competition at Musingu Boys' School during August holidays

Parents have asked Education Cabinet Secretary (CS) George Magoha to investigate a competition taking place at the Musingu Boys' Secondary School, Kakamega County.

The disgruntled parents have told reporters that they took their sons to the school for a soccer talent competition where the winners stand a chance to win scholarships.

The parents explained that the competition was scheduled to begin on August 4, 2019 and end after 14 days but some of them were called to pick their sons after 2 days at the facility.

"Senior master Geoffrey Shisia called me this morning to inform that my son was eliminated and that he had been already asked to leave the compound.


"I later came to learn that this exercise is a scam as I am made to understand that players are not being selected on merit but by bribing for those parents who want their sons to join the school," stated one of the parents, Mr Joseph Barasa.

Facebook post

The parents explained that they had seen the post on social media asking them to take their boys who play football and who are aged between 15 and 17 years old.

The only requirements were sporting kits and equipment, copies of birth and KCPE certificates, and report cards from the schools where they currently attend.


They were promised food and accommodation for the length of their stay at the camp.
