“The Country is scheduled to conduct the general election on the 9th of August 2022. I hereby convey the Government’s decision on the immediate closure of all basic learning institutions with effect from Tuesday 2nd August 2022, until Wednesday 10th August 2022 to ensure that preparations and conduct of the upcoming election are carried out seamlessly,” stated Magoha.
“We may have to sit down as stakeholders and see whether it will be fair to examine the children if they will have lost a considerable amount of time, I pray that that does not happen, these children have suffered enough,” Magoha said.
