Fake text books alert as KICD launches probe

Published

on

The Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD) has assured parents that all the textbooks for the new system of education meet the requirements.

This follows concern that some books circulating in the market purported to be for the Competence-Based Curriculum (CBC) have not been approved.

The curriculum developer also appealed to parents to ensure the complementary textbooks they buy for their children are age-appropriate.

 

“Textbooks are important in curriculum delivery. They must be the right ones to ensure learners are not treated to misleading content,” KICD Director Julius Jwan said.

Some unscrupulous traders, he warned, might take advantage of the introduction of the CBC to sell sub-standard books.

“We are monitoring those inserting fake imprints into such books. But all of us must remain vigilant to protect our children,” Dr Jwan said.

He urged head teachers and parents to refer to the addendum to the Orange Book for CBC — available on KICD’s website — to ascertain genuine textbooks.

Kenyan man deported from the US on arrival at the airport, seeks help to reunite with his Patients

Published

on

An online petition to help a Doctor of Kenyan descent who was deported from the United States two weeks ago has been launched.

According to the petition seen by ksnmedia.com,  Dr. Alexander Ondari  was returning to the US to complete his last year as a resident physician at the University of Texas Medical Branch on July 6th, when he was denied entry.

He is now seeking the intervention of the US Embassy in Nairobi. Below is the Petition as prepared by one Georgia Colleluori:

 

On July the 6th, Dr. Alexander Ondari was returning to USA to complete his last year as a resident physician at University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. However, he was barred from entering, as the immigration officer at the airport (Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport) did not honor the valid J1 Visa that he had. Unfortunately, he was deported back to Kenya where he is right now. Currently, all depends on the USA Embassy in Kenya to grant him a new J1 Visa. 

Dr Ondari’s constant efforts as a physician, together with his charitable character, is critical to the well-being of the communities he lives and serves in. Dr Ondari’s objective is to bring value to the US, an aim that has been already accomplished during the last 17 years as a non-immigrant visa holder. It’s is thus a honor to support his efforts to obtain a J1 visa so that he can serve his patients and continue to improve the health of America.
