Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha has announced that all schools in Kenya will close for over one week to pave way for the General Elections.
Magoha has announced that schools will close from August 6 and shall not reopen until August 15.
This comes as Kenya gears to have its General Elections which will be held on August 9.
Magoha announced the mid-term closing dates when he asked secondary school principals to recall students who might be away at home due various reasons.
“I would like to urge principals who still have students at home to immediately bring them back because we are breaking again on August 6 and we shall not open until 15th.
“If you want to engage the parents then do so when the children are still at home so that if there is school fee to be paid, it should be paid then,” said. Magoha.
