Education CS George Magoha on Thursday, July 30 announced that colleges and universities would remain closed until January 2021.
In a statement, Magoha noted that most institutions were not well prepared to enforce the prevention measures as recommended by the Ministry.
“All Teachers Training Colleges (TTCs), Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVETs) and Universities will reopen for face-to-face sessions in January 2021.
“A robust multi-sectoral approach will be employed to step up preparedness for reopening in compliance with MOH protocols on mitigating the Covid-19 effects,” he stated.
Magoha said that this was after a Survey of all institutions showed that they were not prepared to combat COVID 19.
Magoha lauded the virtual orientation of first-year students that had been undertaken at KCA University in May 2020 and Dedan Kimathi University in June-July, 2020 advising other institutions to take up the move as well.
