      Barasa Alfred Mucha, Jason E. Nganyi, Pamela Buhere
Abstract: Ngoroga (2006) says that parents, grandparents, siblings, aunts, and uncles play a major role in the education of the children. Children learn the first essential social, economic and cultural skills including speech, toiletry and moral values from relatives. Through the siblings, girls learnt behaviours and activities of elder females while boys learnt and imitated older males. This was because old age was equated to wisdom and indeed traditional education was effective, utilitarian and relevant. The place and duration of education by the so called traditional teachers was well defined so to the curricular age of entry and completion, also the content and methodology used was well marked in these institutions.
