The Kenyan president has hinted that schools in the country will be set to re-open in 2021 as Kenya acts on new Covid-19 measures
President Uhuru Kenyatta has said the decision to review Covid-19 measures was taken due to the spike in the number of infections and deaths since August 2020, when tough restrictions were lifted. Some of the new measures include the suspension of political gatherings for 60 days, the closure of bars by 9pm and a review of the night curfew to start at 10pm to 4am. Kenyatta has also ordered civil servants aged above 50 years, and anyone with compromised immunity, to work from home.
Schools which were closed in March 2020, will now re-open in January 2021, however, Form Four, Class Eight and Grade 4 examinations will proceed. Learners for these classes resumed learning in October 2020.
