Wednesday, 24 June 2020 – Education CS, Prof. George Magoha, has left Kenyans questioning his academic credentials following his shocking proposal on the re-opening of schools closed due to the Covid19.
This is after the former UoN Vice Chancellor stated that only15 to 20 pupils will be allowed to sit in one classroom once learning resumes in September.
Prof Magoha said experts from the Ministry of Health had advised that classrooms, which usually hold an average of 45 learners, be decongested to curb infections and spread of the coronavirus.
“We’ve been advised by the Ministry of Health that a class should have between 15 and 20 students.”
“Therefore you all know this is going to be a big challenge because schools do not have sufficient learning facilities” he said.
On June 1st, President Uhuru Kenyatta asked the Education and Health ministries to chart a road map towards reopening institutions of learning.
Kenyans have castigated Magoha for living in a bubble and being out of touch with reality as his proposal is impossible to implement.
