On 25th September, the Schools’ Committee released the list of this year’s Electoral Commission of Kimathi Members. Since then, the election process has been shrouded in a lot of uncertainty. Some time later, the ECK commission was sworn in online, in an event that nobody apart from them knew about. It had been expected that elections would be held online due to the corona virus pandemic. But after phased reopening commenced, everything was halted to see whether it was possible for elections to be carried out normally, that is in the school.
