Schools to Resume on October 12, Magoha Announces

Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha has announced that  Schools will officially re-open on Monday, 12th October 2020  for  Grade 4, Class 8, and form four learners.

Magoha also said that candidates will be sitting for their  KCPE and KCSE exams in March 2021.

KCPE exams will reportedly start on March 22, 2021, and end on March 24, 2021, while KCSE exams will start on March 25, 2021, and end on April 16, 2021

Parents and a section of leaders have criticized the decision saying it’s rushed and both schools and parents are not prepared.
Senator  Mutula KilonzoJR : Public Schools are not prepared to handle students. No funds have been disbursed to schools since March this year. No school( particularly boarding schools )will in the next 7 days procure the sanitizers and other requirements. Some decisions are too grave to be rushed!
KIPCHUMBA MURKOMEN, E.G.H : I have a child in class 6&another in Grade 4 what’s the logic of taking the grade 4 chap to school on Monday while the older one is at home. Didn’t the President say we shall first establish “HOW”&TOGETHER agree “WHEN”?When did the TOGETHER meeting take place? Did I miss a memo?
Patrick: Quite a short notice, confused government.
