Schools Reopening Date Pushed To Monday

It is election time in Kenya. Voting is already done across most parts of the country and rallying is ongoing. It has become apparent that schools in Kenya will not open as scheduled because of the elections.

This is after students closed school on August 1 to allow for the voting process to take place. Initially the Ministry of Education had set the reopening of schools for Thursday, 11 August.

However, the Ministry of Education has today rescinded its decision. The decision was announced by Cabinet Secretary for Education Professor George Magoha who set the new date for reopening of schools as Monday, 15 August.

This decision is to allow the tallying of election results to take place and the winners to be announced. From the look of things this may take a while. 

With the resumption of schools, students in Primary and Secondary schools are set to complete the reminder of second term before going for a inter-term break.

Above all Kenyans are praying for a peaceful elections and life should return to normal as soon as possible.
