Performance in Kiswahili subject in KCSE has not been impressive nationally for a long period. The purpose of the study was to establish factors that influence preparation and utilization of instructional media in teaching Kiswahili in selected public secondary schools in Kenya. Dale’s cone of experience formed the theoretical framework of the study. Descriptive survey research design formed the basis of the study. The study population comprised of 28 head teachers, 90 Kiswahili teachers and 39,327 students in selected public secondary schools in Sabatia District. Simple random sampling method was used to select 9 Head teachers, 30 Kiswahili teachers and 395 form three students. Teachers’ and students’ questionnaires were used to collect information from teachers and students respectively while an interview guide was prepared to obtain data from school head teachers. Qualitative data was received in verbatim and then transcribed and reported in themes and sub-themes while quantitative data obtained was analysed by descriptive statistics such as means, percentages and frequency counts. The study revealed that instructional media resources are poorly utilised by Kiswahili language teachers. The study recommends that the Ministry of education should forecast and plan to fund secondary schools.
