CS Magoha Blames Journalists For Making Him Look Like A Fool As He ‘Reaffirms’ Schools’ Reopening Date

Education Cabinet Secretary professor Magoha has said reopening of schools remains unchanged and that all institutions of basic and higher learning in Kenya will reopen in January 2021, and not any time earlier.

While visiting Pwani university on Wednesday to assess the status of preparedness, the no nonsense CS reiterated that “the position has not changed. However, we may relook the [schools’ reopening date] issue depending on how the virus behaves.”

Magoha further told off journalists for misquoting him on school reopening dates. He blamed the media for making him look like a fool by painting a picture of him as a person who flips-flops.

“The media has made me look like someone who did not go to school. They have made me look like a person who flip-flops; someone who says this today, and says that tomorrow. I want to tell you (journalists) that I am above that kind of nonsense,” said Magoha.

The CS also stated that the Government has set aside at least Ksh1.9 billion for the making of new desks which would make it possible for social distancing to be effected once learning resumes.

“The government has developed a prototype of desks to be used in schools in the wake of COVID-19 outbreak. I have instructed all the 47 county commissioners to come to Nairobi and take a design of the prototype back to their respective counties so that the desk designs can be replicated at the sub-county level,” said the CS.
