Education CS George Magoha has announced that all schools would be closed on August 6 in order to prepare for the approaching general election on Tuesday, August 9.
Speaking at the Alliance Girls on Sunday after touring the facility's ongoing CBC classroom construction, the education ministry's top official promised that the schools would reopen as soon as the election results were made public.
On the sixth of the month, we will break once more, and we won't open again until the fifteenth, according to CS Magoha.
CS Magoha also said that discussions would be undertaken to decide whether students would take their examinations if there were more elections while he was in office.
I hope that doesn't happen because these kids have already suffered enough, said Magoha.
"We may have to sit down as stakeholders and decide whether it will be fair to examine the kids if they have lost a lot of time." Magoha added.
All political events that purported to be launching efforts to win over voters were likewise outlawed by the Education CS on school property.
The students have a very short lifespan, so it is only fair to leave them alone, said Magoha. "We do not want politics in schools," he continued.
"There shouldn't be any political activities; in fact, if I see a political van here, I'll order the police to pull it away after the kids." He concluded.
