RE: SUSPENSION OF FACE-TO-FACE LECTURES ON CAMPUS IN ALL TERTIARY EDUCATION INSTITUTIONS
It is now observed that Covid-19 cases are escalating daily and this may put the lives of students and members of staff in our Institutions at high risk.
In view of the foregoing, the Ministry is hereby directing that all tertiary education institutions, with Immediate effect, suspend face-to-face lectures on campus and continue with e-learning. In this regard, all students should vacate halls of residence by Friday, 24 July 2020.
The Ministry is working flat out to ensure all Institutions adequate resources, with the necessary infrastructure to facilitate access to quality e-learning.
