Kenyans Left Talking After KUPPET Slams Magoha Over School Reopening Dates

The Kenya Union of Post-Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) has questioned if the Ministry of Education plans to carry out a revised direction for schools to resume operations the following week with the potential release of the presidential election results.

This follows George Magoha, the cabinet secretary in charge of education, who on Saturday moved up the reopening of schools from the previously slated Monday to Thursday, August 18, 2022.

Magoha said that the adjustments had been made as a result of a delay in the counting of the votes.

Teachers, students, parents, and other stakeholders, according to KUPPET, are uncertain about whether the ministry will uphold its order given that the reopening date has changed twice in the past week and may change again if the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) experiences additional delays in announcing the results.

Schools are finding it challenging to make arrangements based on the most recent notification because of the uncertainty surrounding the reopening of schools, claims KUPPET.
