Education Minister George Magoha said there would be no national examinations for elementary and middle school-age people this year. This examination usually takes place every year in October and November.
However, colleges and universities will prepare for the reopening in September this year with strict guidelines, the minister said. Schools in Kenya were closed in March after the first coronavirus case was reported.
On Monday, Kenyan President Uhuru Kenya opened the border of three counties which were closed as part of the restrictions imposed. He then gave the Ministry of Education 24 hours to provide information about the school calendar.
