COVID-19 Closes Academic Year in Kenya

Education Cabinet Secretary Professor George Magoha has said it will not be practical and safe to re-open schools because the peak period for the novel coronavirus infections is just starting.

Cases of teenage pregnancy, rape and theft of e-learning funds have rocked counties as pupils stay away from schools due to the pandemic.
