CS Mutahi Kagwe on the Education sector
This is what CS Kagwe had to say about learning institutions
“With regards to the Education Sector, the current evidence and data doesn’t reflect increased cases among learning institutions.
The mortality among school going children has also been extremely low.
To ensure safe and continued learning in our education institutions, all teachers are strongly implored to present themselves for vaccination against Covid-19. This is to safeguard not only the future generation but also ensure that we continue with the education in our school and protect teachers above 58 who have been asked to work from home.”

Other measures that CS Kagwe emphasized include;
Matatus should not carry passenger who are not wearing masks
