Kathiani MP Robert Mbui now says that Kenyan schools are not ready and prepared to re-open amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
Speaking while inspecting the state of schools in his constituency, the MP said since the closure of learning institutions in March due to the pandemic, no measures have been put in place in readiness for the reopening of schools.
The Wiper Party organising secretary further added that a thorough inspection of learning institutions should be done before Prof. George Magoha-led Ministry of Education could consider re-opening.
Mbui criticised a proposal by the Government to involve members of provincial administration in school affairs, claiming that it’s out of their jurisdiction to be involved in such matters and instead leave education issues with teachers.
Addressing the nation on Monday, September 14, CS Magoha said that decision on whether to reopen schools or not will be made next week after a stakeholders meeting.
