Chief Principal of Cardinal Otunga High School Mosocho Albert Ombiro has been promoted and moved to Jogoo House, the Ministry of Education (MoE) headquarters.

According to Kisii County TSC Deputy Director Jackson Muge, Ombiro will now be a Deputy Director of Education at the headquarters, though details of his assignment are not immediately clear.

Sources who spoke to Education News indicated that he will first stop at Jogoo House for a short stint and be later dispatched to China as Education Attaché.

In the handing over ceremony that was presided over by Muge flanked by Kisii Central Sub-County Director Paul Ongoi, the principal was thanked for his devotion to the promotion of education and co-curriculum and asked him to excel more in the new position.

“Now you will sit among education policy-makers and hope you will use your rich experience to enrich the sector,” Muge said.

The Chief Principal has had a wide experience in teaching and leading in secondary schools for more than two decades.

He has been Chief Principal in different schools since 2020. The soft spoken but strict disciplinarian is well known and liked by both parents and teachers for bettering other people’s lives.

Apart from a passion in teaching, Ombiro loves sports and the environment.

In 2023, the National Environmental Authority (NEMA) appointed him Chairman of Champion of Environment Conservation and Fight Against Climate Change in both Kisii and Nyamira counties.

During his tenure, Cardinal Otunga was identified by the same NEMA as a Centre of Excellency in fighting climate change and waste management.

In his farewell speech to the staff and students, the principal challenged them to be faithful to God and to devote all their efforts towards hard work and loving humanity.

“In anything you do, do with the attitude of benefitting another person as we live interdependently,” he bid.
