Magoha spoke on Monday when he coordinated the monitoring reopening of schools in Nairobi County at Olympic Primary School.

A similar exercise is expected to take place in all parts of the country under the supervision of the Ministry of Education and Teachers Service Commission officials as schools reopen after a seven-month break due to the coronavirus.

"For boarding schools, may I plead with principals to ensure that no child is sent home on account of school fees," Magoha said.

The CS said with the progressive reopening of schools, all protocols of MoH have been put in place.

"The schools I have been to this morning has made me happy. Although physical distancing shall remain a challenge to us, it should not be a bottleneck to the resolve of reopening schools," he said.
