Magoha says he’s not sure when schools will reopen: “If it takes year, so be it”

Schools may fail to re-open on June 4 as had earlier been announced after the Ministry of Education cast doubt over students safety should they return to learning institutions.

Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha said it was to early to give specific dates given the uncertainty presented by the coronavirus pandemic which has since claimed 26 lives.

Speaking when he appeared before the National Assembly Education Committee on Thursday, May 7, he said physical learning will only resume when safety of teachers and students is not in doubt.

“If the children have to stay at home for a year, so be it, they are safe at home, so don’t ask me to give you dates when schools will be reopening, I don’t know. If I was to speak as a doctor, I would say that perhaps it is too early to give any specific dates,” he said
