Schools to reopen on August 15, 2022; Ministry of Education has announced

In a press statement on Wednesday, Education Cabinet Secretary Prof. George Magoha has changed the nationwide school re-opening dates from Thursday, August, 11 to August Monday, 15 2022. According to the ministry, the changes have been occasioned by an expected delay in the vote tallying process.

“On 1st August 2022, I ordered the early closure of all Basic Education Institutions to allow for adequate preparation and conduct of the General Elections. We indicated that reopening would be on the 11th of August 2022,” Magoha’s statement read in part.

“We have however been informed that the process of tallying of ballots may still be ongoing on the aforementioned date. Therefore, following further consultations, I hereby convey the Government’s decision that Basic Education Institutions will re-open from Monday, 15th August, 2022,” it further read.

While apologizing for any inconvenience occasioned by the changes, Prof.Magoha added that the latest communication supersedes any earlier communication that the ministry had made on the re-opening of basic education institutions.

“We ask for your indulgence, as we work through ensuring the safety and comfort of learners through this period,” Prof.Magoha.
