President Uhuru Kenyatta spoke to headteachers at a congress in Mombasa County yesterday.
In his speech, the head of state started by mourning teachers who died while on duty during the two years of the COVID-19 pandemic.
He also congratulated teachers for instilling knowledge in children and also applauded those who put Kenya on the global map.
The head of state said 17,000 classrooms have been completed for CBC within a short period, and a few are yet to be completed in the next few months.
He said that teachers need to expose students to how to make money without relying on white-collar jobs.
He also boasted that his administration ensured that teachers received medical cover to support their health and gave attachment through TSC to 120,000 teachers employed between 2013 and 2017.
It has also ensured that the salary increment has been sorted, he stated.
Uhuru also had a piece of advice for politicians who want to succeed him: a leader is one who solves problems without blaming the government.
