President Uhuru Kenyatta on Friday, March 26 ordered a stop to all face-to-face learning activities in Kenya for university, college and vocational training students.
In his address to the nation, the President said the move was arrived at to curb the spread of COVID-19 in Kenya.
The Head of State said the order will be indefinite, meaning no exact date was set to reverse the edict.
President Kenyatta said Final-Year students sitting their tests are, however, exempted from complying with this directive.
The announcement comes on the back of re-introduction of cessation of movement into and out of five counties, namely Nairobi, Machakos, Nakuru, Kajiado and Kiambu.
The President also announced that curfew hours in these counties have been reviewed to 8pm to 4am.
