Halfterm 2023 Reopening Extended
Halfterm 2023 Reopening Extended. Concerns concerning the safety of students returning from half-term vacation on Monday, March 2023, have been raised by Kenyan parents.
The Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition held rallies on this day in support of assertions that living standards are high in the nation.
On Wednesday, March 16, all schools in Kenya were out of session for the half-term holiday.
Mr. Silas Obuhatsa, the chair of the National Parents Association, has pleaded with President William Ruto and Azimio leader Raila Odinga to hold talks to resolve the Kenyan rooming crisis.
The outcome of the demonstrations is uncertain, according to obuhatsa, because they are unpredictable.
This is predicated on the fact that some parents support both the Kenya Kwanza and the Azimio coalitions.
Based on this, obuhatsa has urged the two leaders to communicate for the good of the nation and the sake of young people who are innocent and have never cast a vote.
Hon. Odinga, the leader of Azimio la Umoja, has called for large-scale protests to pressure the government to lower living expenses among other demands.
According to Obuhatsa, there would be delays in the nation’s transportation on Monday, which would certainly result in mayhem for pupils who had to travel great distances.
Moreover, obuhatsa has predicted a scenario in which some hooligans may exploit the circumstance to abuse youngsters.
In this circumstance, the leader has instead requested that the minister of education take into account students staying with their parents.
The Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet) chairperson, Mr. Omboko Milemba, has requested that the reopening be delayed until Wednesday in order to protect students.
Talks for Resolution
Kuppet chair Mr. Milemba is now urging the administration and the opposition to engage in negotiations so as not to interfere with the school program.
On the other hand, Mr. Collins Oyuu, Secretary-General of the Kenya National Union of Teachers, has stated that shifting the reporting date could be interpreted as endorsing Mr. Odinga’s campaign.
Concerns about the security of their children have been highlighted by parents as well.
