The Ministry of Education has changed the Basic Education Institutions' reopening date after elections. In a press release, the ministry moved the date from 11th August, 2022 to the following week citing the slow pace of election process ongoing in the country.
On 1 August 2022, there was an order of early closure of all Basic Education Institutions to allow for adequate preparation and conduct of the General Elections. The ministry indicated that reopening would be on the 11th of August 2022.
However, having been informed that the process of tallying of ballots may still be ongoing on the aforementioned date and further consultations, the Education CS conveyed the Government's decision that Basic Education Institutions will reopen from Monday, 15th August, 2022.
He apologized for any inconvenience caused by the changes and asked for stakeholders' indulgence citing safety and comfort of learners through this period.
"This communication supersedes any earlier communication on the re-opening of basic education institutions," said Magoha.
