(EXCLUSIVE) EDUCATION MINISTRY DEMANDS ALL UNSPENT CO-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES’ MONEY BACK
Following the recent spike in the number of covid-19 positive cases in Kenya, the Ministry of Education has demanded that all unspent cash, which was set aside for co-curricular activities, be reimbursed immediately.
This move is informed by the fact that by the time schools were shut by President Uhuru in Mid-March, term one co-curricular activities were at the county level.

This is disheartening especially for teachers and trainers who dedicated their quality time to train learners this year. It means that trainers should bury any hope of advancing the activities in case schools reopen in September 2020 as proposed by the covid-19 education response team.
The circular has now directed that all unspent balances for activities that never took place to be refunded back to the state department by June 10, 2020.
“This is to direct that the unspent balances for those activities that never took place to be refunded back to the state department by 10th June 2020 so that the same can be used in other areas,” wrote Dr. Belio Kipsang PS Education.
This announcement has caught county and sub-county education directors unawares and they are now struggling to tie the loose ends of their vouchers and records in a huff.
