Schools Won’t Close Incase Of Repeat Polls or By-elections – Magoha

According to Education CS George Magoha, schools will not be closed for the by-elections next week, nor will they be closed if Kenya holds repeat elections.


Speaking to the media during the commissioning of phase 2 Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) classrooms in Embakasi, Magoha stated that his Ministry would work closely with the IEBC to ensure that the polls do not disrupt school activities.

Some decisions, according to the CS, would be made in consultation with other ministries and at the appropriate time.

On Tuesday, August 23, the IEBC will hold by-elections in Kakamega and Mombasa Counties.

Some of the discussions, according to the Education CS, are about determining how the by-election can be held in tertiary institutions so that students taking their National Examinations this year do not have their studies disrupted.

According to Magoha, students would remain in their dorms throughout the election and resume classes as soon as it was over.

“If the students are already in the boarding schools and the classrooms are to be used for a day or so, those students can be for example told to play games or remain in the hostels,” CS Magoha said. 

CS Magoha also assured parents that their children would be safe when school resumed on Thursday during the same press conference.
