After nearly six months since the shutdown of learning institutions in Kenya, the government of Kenya announced on phased reopening of learning institutions.
The Kenya Medical Training College which accounts for more 80% of Kenya's medical workforce was one of the institutions where learning was paralyzed.
Last week some major universities and colleges commenced the physical reopening and on Monday form fours, grade 8 and grade 4 reported to their respective schools.
A letter from CEO Michael Kiptoo to the students and staff shows that the institution is less likely to open soon but instead proceed with online learning for some classes.
This has brought about unrest among the KMTC students as some of them claim that the online classes are ineffective.
A good number of the students have started a hashtag on twitter '#reopenkmtc' to push for the hearing of their grievances.
Here some of their comments on the official KMTC twitter account:
sam kamau-There is no online classes for some classes
dancun wes-Kindly please online classes aren't beneficial at all it's not possible to teach 10% of the class while other students going through many challenges yet they are all students
There's a place where electricity is a problem
Time is a problem
brian korir-There's no online classes currently in my course.
They are not beneficial...
Kindly open the colleges, we are grown-ups and we are responsible for our doings concerning the covid 19 regulations.
