Education Cabinet secretary has pushed the re-opening of schools to Monday next week from the previously announced date of Thursday 11th.
Magoha says that the push is to allow the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission to adequately prepare and conduct the General Elections.
“On 1st August 2022, I ordered the early closure of all Basic Education Institutions to allow for adequate preparation and conduct of the General Elections. We indicated that reopening would be on the 11th August 2022,” reads the statement by Magoha.
“We have however been informed that the process of tallying of ballots may still be ongoing on the aforementioned date. Therefore, following further consultations, I hereby convey Government’s decision that basic institutions will be re-opened from Monday, 15th August 2022.”
The CS has further apologized for any inconvenience occasioned by the changes.
