Published on

Despite the lifting of travel restrictions inside the country, Kenyan authorities have decided that schools will remain closed until 2021, while higher education schools may resume in September, APA ( African Press Agency) learned on Tuesday, 7 July 2020.

According to the Ministry of Education, classes will not resume in primary and secondary schools until next year, as a precaution against the spread of the coronavirus.

The Kenyan government, on the advice of its Ministry of Health, closed all schools in the country last March, due to the installation of the coronavirus pandemic.

For the resumption of the courses next year, all the students should remain in their current form because, no national or external examination is planned for the present year.

George Magoha, the country’s Education Minister, however, said college and university students would resume their courses in September. They will be subject to strict health regulations, he said.
