When two Cabinet Secretaries brave the morning chill to officiate at a 7am book launch, that is a statement on the importance they attach to the publication.
That was the case on Friday, July 29, when Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i and his Lands counterpart, Prof Jacob Kaimenyi, spoke at the launch of clinical psychologist Gladys Mwiti’s book, Parenting With Purpose & African Wisdom.
The 278-page product of Arba Publications could not be more timely, as Prof Kaimenyi took the opportunity to address rampant unrest in schools when he introduced, Dr Matiang’i, the guest of honour. He debunked the opinion that Dr Matiang’i’s crackdown on cheating cartels in the education sector was the cause of unrest in schools that has seen more than 100 schools torched.
