Schools reopening across the country has received a major boost following the release of 14.5 billion to Public Schools by Treasury under the free basic education programme.

Dr. Belio Kipsang, the Principal Secretary for Early Learning and Basic Education on Friday confirmed the disbursement.

“Some Ksh.13.2billion has been sent to secondary schools under the Free Day Secondary Education (FDSE) while Ksh. 1.2 billion has been sent to public primary schools under the Free Primary Education programs,” a statement from the ministry said.

Where there is no running water, schools have been advised to ensure sanitisers are available.

“Although physical distancing will remain a challenge, it should not be used as a bottleneck to keep any child away from school,” he added.

According to the Education Ministry, all schools that were used as quarantine centres have already been fumigated under the supervision of the Ministry of Health.
