Hundreds of Kenya schools to be shut down after deadly collapse

Hundreds of informal schools in Kenya will be shut down after a school building collapsed in Nairobi last month, killing eight children.

Officials blamed poor construction and overcrowding. Now, the education ministry has ordered 300 informal schools to be closed, affecting approximately 10 000 children.

They are supposed to be transferred to nearby public schools which are already overcrowded.
