On Friday, Winnie said she will soon launch online English and History classes.
“With that being said, I start online teaching soon. English and History were my subjects. But be fairly warned, my history classes may differ drastically from the curriculum. You may fail the exam but you will win in knowledge of the truth,” she tweeted.

She was referring to Education PS Belio Kipsang’s remarks of warning untrained persons not to conduct online lessons saying they were committing 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 (Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development), ” said Kipsang warning the ministry will take action.
Kipsang said for a person to be qualified to teach they must be registered with TSC.
“All the content of learning delivered to students must be approved by the KICD, whether for online learning or physical learning. And every teacher must be qualified,” he told MPs.

“The Principal Secretary Education Belio Kipsang is BASKING IN THE GLORY OF HIS IGNORANCE by banning our lesson.We will PROCEED with our KCSE CHEMISTRY REVISION tomorrow at 2pm.Stay tuned on my Facebook,” he said
