Magoha further added that when the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and the Kenya Certificate of Secondary education (KCSE) will be finally administered, learners will be afforded opportunity to recover the time lost during the coronavirus breakout

Prof. Magoha further added that: “At this point, the government has not decided to postpone both the KCPE and KCSE. Let our children enjoy the last week on holiday, and then start the one month that has been added to them.”
