Cabinet secretary of education George Magoha has been on the receiving end. This is following the public uproar for him to announce the schools reopening dates. All learning institutions were closed on 18th March this year by president Uhuru Kenyatta as a move to curb the further spread of the dreaded covid-19 virus.
Earlier cabinet secretary George Magoha had indicated to parents that schools will reopen once the covid-19 curve flattens. This seems to be the current case following the low number of covid-19 cases that have been reported on daily basis example being on 14th September 2020 there were only 48 positive cases.
KNUT secretary general Wilson Sossion has seconded CS George Magoha about the reopening of schools saying,“ Reopening of schools will be determined by the covid-19 trend in the country……We will be guided by MOH…… This is not a political issue but a serious health issue.”
He however added that they shall be having a meeting in ten days time with Minister of education George Magoha and the Teachers Service Commission TSC who will clear the air on how adequate is their preparations based on infrastructure and workforce required to enable Reopening of learning institutions.
