List Of New Literature, Fasihi Set books For Secondary Schools And TTCs 2021

The Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development has unveiled new list of Literature and Fasihi set-books that will be used in secondary schools and teacher colleges.

These books will replace those that were introduced in 2018 and will be in use for five years. This means that the winning publishers will enjoy steady source of income in the next five years.

According to the report by Nation, Fathers of Nations, a novel by Paul B. Vitta has been chosen as the English Literature compulsory text.

Fathers of Nations will replace Blossoms of The Savannah by Henry Ole Kulet (Long horn publishers).

The current optional text, The Pearl written by John Steinbeck will be replaced by Parliament of Owls published by the East African Educational Publishers.

At the same time, A Silence Song and other Stories which is an anthology of short stories will replace Memories we Lost.

In Fasihi, Assumpta K Matei’s Chozi La Heri will be replaced by John Habwe’s Cheche za Moto as a compulsory set text.

The new anthology of short stories in Fasihi will be Mapambazuko ya Machweo replacing Longhorn Publishers’ Tumbo Lisiloshiba.

For teachers training colleges Samuel Wachira’s A Spider’s Web will be studied as a novel while Mzigo wa Kichaa will be studied at Diploma levels.

It is important to note that even after the publishers emerged winners, they are still expected to make changes suggested during the evaluation stage

Evaluation Process

Once the technical evaluation process has been finalized, book entries are scored out of 80 per cent and thereafter invited to the financial bid where they are expected to quote the prices of their books

The financial bid accounts for 20 per cent

Interestingly, the lowest bid is awarded the full marks, with other bidders scored according to how they rank against each other

At this stages publishers engage in unfair competition where they tend to lower prices since the lower the bid, the higher the chances of selection

The idea of going for a lower bid as always received criticisms as being counterproductive, since it has results in greatly reduced earnings for both the publishers and the authors
