According to KTN's post on social media, headteachers are in dilemma that they may not adeaquately prepare for opening of schools in May unless the government releases funds to learning institutions.
It is almost a month following president Uhuru's directive to close all learning institutions in the country. This was caused by the increasing number of covid 19 patients.
Closing of learning institutions was one of the measures to curb the spread of the deadly corona virus.
The cabinet secretary for education professor George Magoha however, maintains that schools are set to be opened on the 10th of May 2021. This will be the start of 3rd term to both primary and secondary schools.
Magoha spoke while releasing the 2020 KCPE results in Nairobi at KNEC headquarters where the top pupil scored 433 marks.
With the increasing number of covid19 patients in the country, there are doubts and speculations on whether it will be possible for schools to open in May or not. This comes after yesterday's covid19 updates.
Speaking to the press, Doctor Mercy Mwangangi said that 1,153 people have tested positive for covid-19 in the last 24 hours. On a sad note, 20 patients have succumbed to the disease.
