Nairobi – Teachers in Kenya have been asked to come back to help prepare for their reopening after the coronavirus lockdown.
Schools in the east African country had been closed since mid-March because of the coronavirus pandemic and were due to remain closed until January next year.
But at a press conference in the capital, Nairobi, the Teachers Service Commission asked teachers to report back to schools on Monday.
“We want the school to be habitable. We’ve been visiting them, most of them are in very good state. There are few schools that have been damaged,” said Education Minister George Magoha.
President Uhuru Kenyatta is expected to announce the date for the reopening of schools after a national Covid-19 conference to be held next week.
