Parents thank the govt for putting off reopening of schools to a later date

Parents led by NPA chairman David Obuhatsa. He has thanked the government for postponing the reopening of schools.

The National Parents Association (NPA) has thanked the government for postponing school reopening date to next week due to the ongoing rains and floods.

The association National Chairman David Silas Obuhatsa said they highly applaud the government for listening to the cry of many Kenyans, adding that in future the government should give such notice at least 3 days in advance to avoid inconveniences to parents and school heads.

Obuhatsa noted that a good number of schools have been affected by the ongoing rains and floods, stating further that as an association of parents in the country, they don’t take it lightly but fully stand behind the President and his government.

“We encourage all Kenyans to remain calm as the government puts plans in place for schools to resume soon. To parents we advise that all children should remain at home till the 6th of May as stated by the government,” he added.

Obuhatsa called on all boarding school heads whose schools might have received learners starting yesterday to contact the County Directors of Education on how such learners should be handled.

“We strongly urge all Kenyans to understand these are natural calamities that it’s not the government’s fault. Blaming the government at such a time is not the solution to the problems Kenyans are facing. Floods are natural calamities that nobody has control over,” stated Obuhatsa.
