The High Court has suspended the decision to close private schools by the government due to the on-going public school teachers’ strike

Judge Mumbi Ngugi said such an order was in the interest of justice, noting it was urgent matter in the circumstances.

The case had been filed on Monday by the officials of the Kenya Private Schools’ Association (KPSA) challenging the government directive to close all public and private schools.

KPSA officials sued the Education Cabinet Secretary Jacob Kaimenyi and the Attorney-General Githu Muigai over the directive.

Through lawyer Muturi Kamande, they noted that the Cabinet secretary issued a circular on September 18 that indicated September 21 as the school’s third term closing date.

They claimed the reasons given for the change of date from November 13 to September 21 did not give reasons that concern private schools.

The officials, therefore, wanted the directive suspended.

They said teachers in private schools have private contracts with their employers and would have to be paid whether schools close now or not.

KPSA also claimed that fees would not be refunded, leading to irreparable losses.
