Speaking in Nakuru on Wednesday where Kenya Secondary Schools Heads Association from western province are meeting, Kuppet National Chairman Omboko Mulemba said handling and managing the schools has become unmaintainable due to financial constraints and urgent measures should be taken to avert crises.

“The treasury, ministry of Finance should work in haste to provide the money and release immediately failure to which after one week all school going pupils and student would be sent packing and teachers left in school until the government act.” Omboko said.

Deputy Prime Minister Musalia Mudavadi echoed Kuppet call and said the delayed disbursement of fund is a serious concern and unfortunate which require being addressed quickly and urgent measures taken to avert early school closing.
