Grade 1-3, Class 5-7, Form 1-3 Students Should Reopen on Monday After Good News by CS Kagwe -Opinion

There is no need for students to wait longer at home as their counterparts in grade four, standard eight and form four enjoy learning.

The end of this week will complete two weeks since schools were reopened in the country.

Schools were reopened for physical learning on 12 October by the government after the deadly COVID-19 halted the same about seven months ago.

President Uhuru Kenyatta suspended learning in mid-March as a measure to curb the spreading virus.

While only a few students resumed, a majority of learners are still at home.

Why full reopening should be effective from Monday next week

The government is yet to announce the exact date when full learning will resume, but based on what is going on in the country after the news Health CS Mutahi Kagwe announced on Thursday, students should be allowed back in class as soon as possible.

According to CS Kagwe, Kenya took critical response when the pandemic hit us, which enabled the country to control the spread of the virus beyond manageable measures.

"Kenya has contained the spread of COVID-19 and its attendant devastation, quite remarkably. Critical to our response was the all government approach in the response, with leadership from the top led by His Excellency the President; CS Sen Mutahi Kagwe sadi while at Covid symposium.

CS Mutahi Kagwe's revelations on how the country has managed to control the virus should be taken positively and reopen schools for all students.

The virus is here to stay

Since we are all aware the virus is not going away any soon, there is no need to waste our learner's time. Wasting students time translates to losing a generation, or simply complicating their transitions.

It won't be of great value if, for examples, those doing their KCEP exams are supposed to join form one, but those in form one are not moving to the next class. Schools will not have much space considering they are already struggling with social distancing with a few students in schools.

Let the natural immunity play its role

We will be unfair not to recognize how our natural immunity is helping us fight the infection. So many Kenyans have recovered from the disease and only a few succumbing to it. Other countries recorded heartbreaking deaths, which has not happened in Kenya regardless of not having a stronger health system like them, for instance, Italy, the US, this indicated how crucial our natural immunity has helped us. Students can follow key measures to the latter and learn, just the way they are doing while staying at home.

In many villages, kids are playing together without any sense of social distancing, fortunately, they are fine. This means staying at home does not mean the kids are not playing together.

Endless political rallies

Political rallies in Kenya are becoming common, even President Uhuru Kenyatta and his handshake brother are this Thursday in Kisumu. In video emerging online, they are being joined by locals who are not keen on social distancing. Since learners are at home, joining such rallies cannot be ruled out. The case is not the same when they are in school.

More so, learners may not join the rallies, but their parents could. If this happens, learners will also get affected when their parents contract the virus from such rallies. All these can somehow be avoided if the schools reopen in full.

Many schools have put up measures to curb the spread of the virus

Apart from social distancing, other measures are not hard to be met by schools, for instance, regular hand washing, students putting on masks, and name them.
