Cabinet Secretary for Health Mutahi Kagwe has said schools are not prepared for opening. Mr.Kagwe while giving daily updates on corona on Wednesday stated that schools had not observed the measures given by the ministry of health.
Kagwe stated that the learners’ health is more crucial than schools reopening. He reiterated that we should not rush to open schools lest we go the German way. After reopening schools in German, the virus has continuously spread and killed thousands.
The cabinet secretary for health has killed hopes of many Kenyans who had hoped that schools would reopen soon This was after the education CS Prof.Magoha had hinted of possible school opening anytime.
The government through the ministry of education closed schools in March this year. It had given September as a possible reopening date. This was, however, rescheduled for January 2021.
The ministry of health CS says that schools will reopen only when the health of learners is guaranteed.
