Government increases school funding

07 August 2014, 16:23 Ken Wekesa

Mombasa - Cabinet secretary for Education, Jacob Kamenyi has announced that the government has increased free primary education and secondary schools tuition funds allocation in all public schools by 39% and 33% respectively.

Speaking at the 10th annual KEPSHA conference, Kamenyi said the funds will facilitate the payments for national exams, improve feeding programs in schools and stock all science and technological departments in the schools.

“We want to ensure that children don't pay registration and examination fees, in an effort to keep them in school,” said Kaimenyi.

He also said the government has increased the funds allocated for the purchase of sanitary towels to help girls during emergencies.

However, Kaimenyi assured the Primary schools heads that the Jubilee administration has resolved delays in funds remittance to schools.

“The Deputy Ppresident assured the heads that the matter has been discussed and we will make sure the funds are available before the beginning of next term,” said Kaimenyi.

For the 3rd day running, KEPSHA meeting in Mombasa registered a low turnout of school heads with those absent complaining of lack of funds to facilitate their travel to the conference.

“I arrived today (Wednesday) in Mombasa. I'm late because the ministry delayed sending funds to our school,” said a school head who sought anonymity.
