MP Babu Owino receives UNICEF recognition for online teaching amid criticisms from Education Ministry

Embakasi East Member of parliament Hon. B Owino has been been recognized by the Unicef for his untiring efforts to teach students online via facebook live.

The young parliamentarian was appreciated by United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and also featured during a news edition on Voice of America (VOA).

UNICEF lauded the lawmaker as one of few individuals and institutions embracing technology in teaching learners  who cannot access their tutors in the wake of the corona virus pandemic.

“Bob Owino, ni mbunge nchini Kenya ambaye ameamua kuitumia talanta yake ya masomo ya sayansi, kuwafundisha wanafunzi kupitia mitandao yake ya kijamii,”  read a post in UNICEF website.

The multi talented MP could not hide his joy. Babu took to his facebook page to note how happy he was after UNICEF recognized his efforts in a bid to ensure continuity of learning even as covid-19 takes a toll on education sector.

“OUR GOOD TUTORIAL WORK HAS BEEN PUBLISHED BY THE UNITED NATIONS AND VOICE OF AMERICA.WE WILL CONTINUE HELPING OUR CHILDREN,” posted Babu Owino

It should be remembered that this exclusive recognition comes amid Babu Owino being criticized for teaching yet not certified by the Teachers Service Commission. 

Last week, Education Principal Secretary (PS) Belio Kipsang while appearing before parliament cautioned the MP against offering the lessons stating that anyone teaching learners without proper qualifications committed an illegality.

Anybody who is offering to teach students without being qualified is undertaking an illegality, and so is anyone circulating e-learning information that is not approved by KICD,” said education PS.
