Central Organisation of Trade Unions (Cotu) Secretary-General Francis Atwoli has come to the rescue of embattled Education CS George Mgaoha blaming corruption cartels for his woe.

On Friday, the Cotu boss said the continued attacks on the CS were influenced by people who want Magoha out of the office to enable them to continue benefiting from multi-million shilling tenders in the ministry.

Atwoli called on President Uhuru to come to Magoha’s rescue and shield him from the cartels.

Speaking to the press, Atwoli questioned why the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) was quick to open investigations into the CS yet many corruption cases were pending.

Atwoli said instead of the anti-graft agency focusing on the claim of ghost learners that have continued to cost taxpayers millions of shillings, it has instead resorted to investigating “triviality”.

Last week CS George Magoha revealed a scandal involving the inflation of the number of learners in public schools by over 500,000.

Atwoli claimed some individuals were against Prof Magoha for allegedly exposing loopholes that have been exploited in the ministry.

The last few days have seen the CS come under criticism for confronting a senior ministry of education official in Uasin Gishu County.
