There has been darkness about school going children in Kenya, since covid19 pandemic's onset. Many learners have lost hope in life, as some became victims of early pregnancies and drug abuse, occassioned by long holiday. The academic dreams of such children have been shuttered. While some have died due to circumstances brought about by the pandemic.
However, the ministry of education had taken a bold step, towards reopening of schools by proposing the back to school date. This has shade light as school going days set to come back. The move that has also been backed by all stake holders, including TSC. And the commission has shown its support by ordering teachers, to report to school on 28th September 2020.
Furthermore, president Uhuru Kenyatta seems to bring more light about the whole issue, as he is set to chair a cabinet committee today. Thi is in order to discuss the proposed date of reopening of schools. This implies that, should the committee adopt, the proposal then, schools across the country will be reopened in October. This will therefore mark the end of depression of students, especially candidates who were to sit for their final examinations.
