Rift Valley Regional Commissioner George Natembeya came out to defend the decision to prevent journalists from accessing schools in Nakuru County. Speaking to a local radio station on Thursday January 7, 2021 Natembeya revealed that the decision was right.

“Some of these schools they want to visit are boarding schools. We all know leaners in there should not interact with outsiders except teachers and other school staff, ” Natembeya noted.

The Commissioner disclosed that the decision was so that they would have an easier time following the guidelines laid out by the Ministry of Health.

“If we let other strangers interact with students it would mean a higher risk at spreading Covid19, ” Natembeya said.

He also reported that the students and school staff had been tested and their body temperature checked. This meant that any outsider who had not gone through the process would be a disadvantage to the resumption of learning.

Some parents had shown unrest while commenting on the issue claiming that they needed to know how their children were doing.

Learning resumed on Monday this week with students going back to school after a 9 months break that was caused by the outbreak of Covid19 in 2020.
