Kenyas government is planning to spend KES15 billion to allow schools to teach four subjects online.

He said planning is underway to provide schoolchildren with customised devices to aid in digital learning.The devices will be developed in partnership with local universities.Mucheru also said the funds, in partnership with Unicef, would be used to lay infrastructure such as fibre optic cables, build ICT laboratories, connect electricity, buy tablets for learners and train teachers under the Digital Learning Project.The project is reportedly part the of administrations plan to ensure children from low-income households who mostly attend public schools learn how to use computers and the internet from an early age as private school students are more computer-literate.This comes news comes at a time when Kenyan schools have already been closed for six-months due to the COVID-19 pandemic. When asked why an online project was not implemented sooner, Gadgets Africa reports that plans were underway but they drew opposition from education stakeholders.
