All Schools Set To Reopen On Monday, May 13

President William Ruto has announced that all schools will reopen on Monday, May 13.

President Ruto announced the new reopening date at State House, Nairobi on Wednesday.

“All parents are advised, on the assessment of weathermen and the Government of Kenya, it will now be safe. We have made adequate arrangements, we have asked Members of Parliament and we have provided resources through NG-CDF for repair of classrooms and other learning facilities across Kenya and therefore, all schools will be opened on Monday next week and therefore parents must prepare their children to go to school,” he said.

This comes barely a week after he announced the suspension of school reopening until further notice.

Ruto had on Friday directed the Ministry of Education to postpone reopening all schools.

“The Ministry of Education is directed to postpone the dates of the reopening of all schools in the country for the second term until further notice,” the President said.

The postponement, Ruto said, followed a warning by the meteorological department that indicated that the flooding is likely to worsen with the ongoing rains.
