Professor George Magoha who is the Cabinet Secretary of education advised that with the current upward trend of coronavirus cases in the country, the reopening of schools should be further pushed forward even to next year because the safety of the students is what matters more than anything.

He added that it will not be easy to maintain the social distancing rule because of the high number of students in the schools. This now means that Kenyans are not sure whether the schools will be reopened in September or next year.

President Uhuru Kenyatta had ordered the Ministry of Education to speed up everything up so that the schools can be reopened in the month of September through a gradual process by first starting with the candidates.

The deputy President honorable William Ruto also advised that the reopening of schools should wait until a vaccine is found because it may be risky to allow the students to report back to schools with the current high number of coronavirus cases in the country.
