CS Magoha praises MKU's preparedness to January re-opening, asks Thika Technical to improve in some areas

Education Cabinet Secretary Prof. George Magoha has  congratulated Mount Kenya University (MKU) for the level of preparedness in receiving back their students in January 2021.

While speaking during an inspection tour to assess the level of preparedness among institutions, Prof. Magoha expressed satisfaction in the institution's adherence to the Ministry of Health protocols in the fight against the spread of COVID-19.

He noted that, among the institutions that he has visited, it was only MKU and Strathmore University that seemed to be prepared for re-opening in January.

Magoha praised them for their initiative to offer online classes as well as their plans to conduct a virtue graduation ceremony, saying this was key to curbing the spread of the deadly virus.

"I am impressed by the level of preparedness I have witnessed here including these automatic sanitizer dispensers, provision of tanks for washing of hands and good classrooms spacing. This is very encouraging," he said.

The CS however failed short of committing himself on the actual opening dates, insisting that this was subject to the advise by the MoH.

The situation at the Thika Technical Institute (TTI) was however 50-50. Even though the CS was impressed with their efforts, he had reservations on some of their walls which he said were dirty as well as the quality of some of their sanitizers.

He directed that the institution do some improvements on their kitchen floor as well as observing some code of dressing for the kitchen staff.

Magoha also demanded some explanation as to why the building and civil engineering block had stalled.
