Magoha Announces Closing Date For Schools Ahead Of Elections

CS Magoha also said that if there are additional elections while he is in office, there will be discussions over whether students will take their exams.

Education CS George Magoha has announced schools will be closed on August 6 in order to be ready for the approaching General Election. 

The head of the education ministry announced that the schools would reopen as soon as the election results were made public while speaking at the Alliance Girls on Sunday.

CS Magoha also said that if there are additional elections while he is in office, there will be discussions over whether students will take their exams.

“We may have to sit down as stakeholders and see whether it will be fair to examine the children if they will have lost a considerable amount of time, I pray that that does not happen, these children have suffered enough,” Magoha said. 

The Education CS also banned all events held on school grounds by politicians claiming to be launching projects in order to woo voters.

“We do not want politics in schools because the students have a very short term and it is only fair that they are left alone. There should be no political activities, in fact, If I see any political van here, I will tell police to tow them.”
