Only learning institutions that will comply with World Health Organisation laid conditions on Covid-19 will be allowed to open in September.

Education Cabinet Secretary Prof George Magoha has said all the universities and tertiary colleges will be subjected to inspection to ensure they adhere to the protocols to stop the spread of Covid-19.

Speaking at Murang’a Technical Training Institute in Maragua town, the CS said Strathmore University, University of Nairobi and Chuka University had been inspected.

“In the facilities, social distance will be a key factor, as those that will not comply will remain closed to ensure safety of the learners,” he said.

He said the inspection would also include students’ hostels and all facilities to ensure social distance of 1.5 metres is met.

At Murang’a Technical Training Institute, he expressed displeasure on the preparedness to admit students, saying there was no running water, electricity and adequate furniture.

He was accompanied by the ministry’s Administrative Secretary Zack Kinuthia and Maragua MP Mary Wamaua.

Magoha accused ministry officials of failure to conduct inspection on the facility to understand challenges behind failure to admit learners.
