Education Secretary Professor George Magoha gave an update on students across the country this afternoon.
In an interview with journalists on Friday evening, Magoha spoke about the school term and the national exams scheduled for this term.
Magoha said the school will go ahead with the planned schedule despite the ongoing presidential petition.
Furthermore, the Head of the Department of Education stated that, despite the decision of the Ministry, he hopes that his students can return to school and participate in their exams.
“We still hope that by God’s grace our children will return to school no matter what,” said Magoha, stressing concerns about the next school opening.
The issue came to light when the US Embassy in Kisumu issued a travel advisory.
Parents are asking the government how prepared it is to protect school-going children in the face of unrest arising from the decision.
Magoha urged parents not to worry because the school calendar will continue as planned
