Tana River, Homa Bay & Kisumu Schools May Remain Closed- Machogu

Education Cabinet Secretary, Ezekiel Machogu on Thursday announced that schools may not be opened in several parts of the country following heavy rains witnessed in those regions.

According to the CS, Tana River, Homa Bay and Kisumu counties are some of the areas where schools may not be opened.

Speaking on Thursday morning, Machogu confirmed that the affected schools will not be reopened and learners within the regions will be considered for alternative learning methods.

He was speaking while assessing Karen C Secondary School in Nairobi’s readiness to open up for the second term.

Machogu further added that 95 per cent of schools in the country were ready for students to resume learning for the second term.

Additionally, the CS stated that the ministry would be reducing the duration of the August holiday to create enough time for the completion of the syllabus.

This is following the postponement of school opening dates from May 6 to May 13 after heavy rains rocked the country.
