Amani National Congress leader Musalia Mudavadi has said the Competency Based Curriculum will be scrapped once the Ruto/Mudavadi government takes power after the August general election.
Mudavadi communicated this via ANC’s official social media handles.
“The controversial Competence-Based-Curriculum (CBC) of education will be scraped once the Ruto/Mudavadi government takes power in August,” ANC tweeted.
He claimed CBC was implemented without extensive consultations with stakeholders.
“ANC supremo @MusaliaMudavadi says CBC was hurriedly implemented without wide and genuine consultations with stakeholders and the new system is a big burden and an academic frustration to Kenyan parents,” read the tweet.

The CBC was introduced in 2017 to replace the 8-4-4 system of education after research and development y the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD).
The tweet was received with mixed reactions from KOT who shared their thoughts about the same and here are a few of them:
On this the anc is wrong! My pp1 kid is able to read while I only started to read when I was in STD 5. They should talk of ways of bettering cbc— nyatwanga (@Jfknyatwanga) February 6, 2022
Only teachers understand the kind of mess and confusion cbc has brought to this country— Quotable quotes (@untamed_quotes) February 7, 2022

CBC is aligning education to technology- away from wheelbarrows
I don't know who needs to hear this, but Cbc is a good system of education that will help the children to major on what the child has the potential in doing. Not everyone is academically talented. But with cbc the child can learn and specialize in the area he or she is talented— Allan Obare, HSC???????? (@AllanObare4) February 6, 2022
