#Covid-19: Kenya cancels 2020 academic year

Must read

The Education Cabinet Secretary Professor George Magoha has said Schools in Kenya will not re-open until 2021 due to fears of COVID-19 infections which have started taking toll in the country.

As of today, there are 11,468,979 confirmed cases of COVID-19, and 535,181 deaths reported to the world health organisation (WHO). According to WHO Kenya have 7886 confirmed cases of Covid-19 and 160 deaths.

According to Professor Magoha it will not be practical and safe to re-open schools because the peak period for the virus infections is just starting.

 “This academic year is lost, meaning all learners will be required to repeat their current classes when schools reopen next year.”  He said without giving exact dates.

Consequently, he said, national examinations for primary and secondary schools will not be done this year. “Schools will reopen next year, that is when KCPE and KCSE examinations will be done,” Magoha said.
