The Government has extended school closure for one month effective from the date of opening which was set at May 4.

Speaking on Sunday, Education Cabinet Secretary Prof. George Magoha announced the extension and further that candidates will seat for their national exams.

CS Magoha said that the earliest schools can reopen is June 5th.

I want to emphasize that for the past four weeks, students have been on normal vocation, an activity that ends on the fourth of May.

During the intervening period, there will be many interventions that will depend on how the government controls this disease,” Magoha said.

He further disclosed that the government has put plans in place to ensure every child covers everything that needs to be covered before sitting for the final exams.

President Uhuru Kenyatta ordered for the closure of all schools in the country on March 15 after Kenya reported the first COVID-19 case.
