Cs.George Magoha has finally promised parents that after delaying the school reopening date, the government will no longer interfere with the academic calendar.
On ,August 17, professor Magoha announced that a petition challenging the presidential election results would be submitted, and the Supreme Court might then mandate a new election.
Government, according to the CS, would consider all learners’ safety while it deliberates and provides a course of action.

“They (students) can be asked to play games and stay in their hostels,” he added .
Professor Magoha also reiterated that the schools will resume on Thursday 18, 2022.
Back Saturday, August 13, Magoha postponed the reopening of schools citing the ongoing vote tallying exercise.
