He continued by noting they have put in place measures to ensure the smooth reopening of learning institutions and that some universities and TVETs have already complied with the measures.

It is because of the above that Magoha recommends virtual learning in university with priority given to those in their final years.

He noted how some have already conducted virtual orientation of first-year students the likes of KCA and Dedan Kimathi university.

Plans are underway to deploy teachers through the Nyumba Kumi initiative to students who are unable to access online classes or on radio and television.
