Teachers in Kenya have been directed to return to schools on Monday next week to prepare for the eventual resumption of learning.
While giving the directive in Nairobi on Monday, Teachers Service Commission CEO Nancy Macharia said the teachers should be at their workstations on September 28, 2020 or earlier depending on one's convenience.
At the same time, Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha said the reopening of schools will be announced only after stakeholders agree on an appropriate date.
Prof Magoha also said that 15 schools in every sub-county will benefit from the Sh1.9 billion desks and chairs which will be made by the jua kali sector.
Prof Magoha also announced that final year science students have been allowed back to universities to do their practicals in order to be ready for graduation at the end of the year. The CS said that the students must observe Covid-19 rules.
