After the controversy of recent days with the parents' associations of Kenyan students, Education Minister George Magoha confirmed that schools will reopen soon.
Speaking in Homa Bay while inspecting the Mawego Technical Training Institute, the Minister said that next week the government will give indications when classes will resume.
"We have not yet decided when the schools will reopen," said Magoha. "For now we are reviewing our system. We will therefore meet with all areas of education and decide on the reopening".
Once a decision has been taken, it will be communicated to President Kenyatta who will have the final word, even if it is assumed that the date chosen could be November 2.
Meanwhile in the country the numbers are always few: 148 cases yesterday, Friday, September 18, with a growing outbreak in Mombasa (yesterday 40 cases) and 4 deaths that bring the total number of deaths with Covid-19 to 646.
At the same time, the Ministry of Health announced 98 new healings of patients who were discharged from hospitals (52) or home care programs (46).
"I am not speaking on behalf of the Ministry of Health - commented the Minister of Education - but I can say with authority that the Covid-19 curve is flattening. Let the teachers prepare to return to school so that pupils can resume learning as soon as possible".
The government has allocated nearly 2 billion shillings for new desks, chairs and lockers to provide primary and secondary schools. The furniture, to be assembled on site, will be delivered to educational institutions by the end of October.
