Kenyans Portray Mixed Reactions As President Kenyatta Says Schools Will Resume From 10th May

Saturday 1st May 2021, Labor Day got celebrated with lots of anxiety. It came a few weeks after the president had summoned schools to close and opt to e-earning, reduced curfew hours, and imposed a lockdown on four of Kenya’s counties, Nairobi and Nakuru included. Kenyans were expecting many positive responses and considerations from the president. 

Kenyans’ prayer indeed came to pass, and the president cleared the air on one of the most expected announcements, schools opening. The president maintained schools would resume come 10th May, upholding the school calendar. A declaration that has since met mixed reactions from Kenyans

In a post made by Citizen TV on their “Citizen TV Kenya” Facebook page highlighting Kenyans of the Governments declaration on schools’ resumption, Kenyans have raised several alarms through their replies.

For instance, Kelvin Kipkoech, in his reply, raised a concern, depression issue that almost everyone is presently experiencing. Kipkoech stated that the school resumption news is a great shock to most parents whose jobs were rendered null and do not know how they would source fees. At the same time, Mercy Obonyo sensitized that the children life is far much incomparable to anything else. An implication that the government needed to keep tracking Covid-19 control before allowing the opening of institutions as from 10th May.

Below are screenshots of some of the replies; take a look.
