Education CS George Magoha during the release of the 2019 universities and colleges students' selection results, at the Catholic University of Eastern Africa Main Campus in Karen, Nairobi; on Monday 15th April, 2019.

A total of 8 degree courses failed to attract interest from students who sat for the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education, KCSE, exams in 2018.

The Commission for University Education must conduct a thorough analysis of these courses with a view to addressing this shocking scenario, including a review and scrapping of such programmes,” directed Prof Magoha.
