College students Taskforce has asked government to re-open schools on July 13, 2020 as recommended by the National Planning Taskforce on the Possible Re-opening of Schools, Colleges and Universities.
On Tuesday, the taskforce on re-opening of schools recommended to the Presidential Taskforce on Coronavirus, that all schools, Colleges and Universities be re-opened on 13th July, 2020.
According to the taskforce chaired by Professor Lewis Dzimbiri, the schools will be re-opened with some conditions and details of the conditions will be released soon.
The Presidential taskforce on COVID-19 is yet to respond on the matter.
However, the students are calling on for the adoption of the recommendation in the next 24 hours.
The students have since set aside 5th June as a date when they will hold national wide demonstrations forcing government to adopt the recommendations.
President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika ordered the closure of schools in March this year to control the spread of coronavirus.
