CS Magoha’s warning to lecturers after Ken Ouko’s death

Cabinet Secretary of Education Professor George Magoha has sent a warning to lectures and all teachers regarding non-adherence to the government’s Covid-19 prevention directives as reopening of schools nears.

The CS warning comes a day after the death of Ken Ouko, a lecturer at the University of Nairobi (UoN), after developing Covid-19 complications at the Aga Khan Hospital.

Professor Magoha was speaking during a tour to Inspect Maseno University in Kisumu in preparation for the reopening of Universities in January 2021, where he warned about the dangers of the contagious disease.

Magoha advised the University Vice-Chancellor to guard his academic staff jealously by ensuring that the management puts sanitizers outside the toilets, boarding halls, and theatres.

He further warned all lecturers and teachers across the country to be extra careful as the virus is real, and its killing people alarmingly.

The CS noted that the death of Ouko brings the total number of fatalities in UoN out of Covid-19 to five, including three lecturers and two non-teaching staff.

Following the death of 5 employees, UoN had earlier on pushed reopening to January 2021 before the Ministry of Education’s move.

Magoha also warned about politicizing the Ministry’s decision to postpone the scheduled reopening of Universities from September 2020 to January 2021.

The former Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) chairman stated that most institutions of higher learning were not well prepared to enforce the prevention measures as recommended by the Ministry.

The Education official advised institutions to prioritize testing of workers as the schools remain closed.

While addressing the press at Maseno University, the government official also called on universities to improve their online learning ahead of the scheduled reopening in January 2021.

Dr. Ken Ouko who was a renowned sociology died on Saturday at the Aga Khan hospital shortly after he was admitted to the hospital with Covid-19 complications.
