Due to the coronavirus outbreak, schools were affected worldwide and learning were suspended, in bid to checkmate the ugly menace terrorising the world.
And gradually some countries has opened up their schools, but Schools in Kenya have been asked to refund parents with the fees they paid for their ward at the beginning of the academic year or agree to use the fees for next year.
The appeal was given by the Kenyan Government, through its education minister, George Magoha.
He made this known while he was responding to concerns raised after his announcement yesterday, that primary and secondary schools would not reopen until 2021 as Coronavirus cases in the country were rising.
According to him, the school’s calendar has been declared null and void as a result of COVID-19 and all students would be made to repeat a year as schools closed in mid-March, three months after school calendar started.
