BY JOAN WANJIKU,NAIROBI,5TH JUNE,2021-The Ministry of Education has banned all forms of meetings and unauthorized rallies being held in schools.
In statement Saturday, Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha by holding such meetings in schools could expose learners to Covid-19.
“It has come to the attention of the Ministry of Education that various groups of people are targeting schools as venues for holding unauthorised meetings,” said CS Magoha
“By holding the meetings at the school facilities, the groups are exposing learners to the dangers of Covid-19 as many of the attendees do not comply with the Ministry of Health guidelines on Covid-19,” he added.
“The Ministry is, therefore, notifying all Kenyans that school compounds and facilities are out of bounds and cannot be used to host unauthorised meetings.”
“Let us all allow our learners to progress with their normal activities without exposing them to dangers of Covid-19,” he said.
He further warned that firm action will be taken against individuals or groups found to be flouting this ban.
