CS Matiang’i To Lead Discussions On School Reopening Strategies

Cabinet Secretary for Interior and Coordination of National Security Dr. Fred Matiangi will this morning meet county commissioners in Nairobi to discuss safety measures laid down ahead of schools’ reopening in January 2021.

Education cabinet secretary and senior officials from the office of the president are expected to chair the meeting that will take place at Kenyatta International Conference Centre(KICC).

Regional and county commissioners, as well as regional and county directors of Education will also attend the meeting.

Part of the discussions in the high level meeting, will be the design of prototype of the special desks, that will make social distancing possible in both primary and secondary schools.

While assessing status of preparedness in Pwani university on Tuesday, Magoha said that the design prototypes will be available at the county commissioners, county directors of Education and their sub-county offices.

President Uhuru had earlier announced that his  government had set aside Sh1.9 billion under the Economic Stimulus Programme for the supply of special locally assembled desks to public primary and secondary schools.

According to the ministry of education, Sh1 billion will be used to make desks for secondary schools, while the remaining Sh900 million will cater for desks for primary schools.

Unveiling of the special desks will definitely mark a major milestone in preparations for opening basic education institutions.

CS Magoha has maintained that all schools will reopen in January and accused the media of portraying him as as a person who flips-flops.

Earlier on, the ministry of education had planned to reopen universities and colleges in September, but this was shelved due to inadequate preparations.
