His Grace, Dr. Jackson Ole Sapit held a meeting with Education Cabinet Secretary, Dr. Fred Matiangi at the Anglican Church of Kenya Head office on 1st August 2016 to discuss school unrest.
Over a hundred schools have been burnt within the last two months. This is a thorn in the flesh to parents, teachers, students and Kenyans at large and the church has been deeply concerned and restless on this matter.
The church has also previously joined other concerned stakeholders in various forums aimed at getting a solution to this matter. His Grace assured the CS of the Anglican Church's support in ensuring value based education is instituted and promoted in Kenya. The Anglican Church is committed to supporting the institutionalization of chaplaincy in our learning institutions and other sectors of the work, politics and economy.
The CS said the government recognizes that the church pioneered education for African in the country and is therefore committed to partnering with the church and other stakeholders in the provision of value-based quality education in Kenya.
As the nation seeks to address the reasons behind the unrest, it was unanimously agreed that all leaders and team players in the education sector need to ensure that the unrest is completely quenched and that proper mechanisms of building a civility are established.
