Schools have been on closure for about 6 months now. This was as a result of a government’s directive to suspend face to face learning in all learning institutions in the country. University students have been one of the most affected groups following the indefinite closure of schools. Various University chairs met with the ministry of education top leaders to urge them to allow universities to reopen schools as the students are mature and responsible. The CS secretary of Education on Monday hinted on point school re-opening and yesterday’s Standard newspaper wrote that universities have been given greenlight to recall their students on campus studies on their preferred dates.
The Cabinet secretary cited that a majors stakeholder meeting is scheduled on 25th September 2020. The meeting will be chaired by Interior CS Dr.Fred Matiang’i and the CS of MoH Mutahi Kagwe will also attend the meeting. The meeting is set to reveal the re-opening dates after critical consultations with all the relevant stakeholders.
These come in handy with other good news from HELB to all universities. After completing the allocation process some few days ago, the board this morning said they’re in the process of disbursing the funds into the students account. This was said by the board when one students inquired about the disbursement in a Facebook’s post. University students can finally smile following the announcement by HELB.
