Confusion Over Day Schools Reopening Safety as Machogu Issues Directive

Further confusion reigns about the resumption of schools, since there is no clear directive on how day school students will be protected to and from school.

The Education CS Ezekiel Machogu stated that the decision to implement measures for day school students was left to schools to independently analyze the situation and provide mitigations.

Machogu directed that the community and board of Management have the power to provide mitigation measures for pupils who must cross flooded rivers.

“We have informed the Board of Management of the affected schools to take due diligence so that we are assured that our children when they go back to school and back home are safe,” Machogu stated.

The government also announced intentions to change second-term dates, likely cutting the August holiday to make up for time lost during the extended school closure, according to CS Machogu.

However, the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examination calendar will not alter.

Machogu stated that schools are expected to close in August for three weeks, but there might be an effort to minimize the number of days of closure so that the syllabus can be fully covered during that period.
