Speaking during a Form One admission mop up exercise in Kibera Monday morning, Education Cabinet Secretary Prof. George Magoha noted that a paltry 11 counties have so far surpassed the 100% transition policy, adding that between Friday and Monday 150,000 students from various parts of the country were enrolled into different schools across the country.
