Nakuru County Government urged to vet colleges

30 December 2013, 16:10 Wilshere

Nakuru - Nakuru Pastors Elders Council (NPEC) has called on the county government of Nakuru to vet all higher learning institutions saying most of them are offering substandard education.

Addressing the press in Nakuru on Monday, Bishop John Kibe said some of the learning institutions are out to make money instead of equipping students with the needed skills. 

“Our county government needs to vet some of these learning institutions because their main core of business is only to make money,” he said.

Kibe said such kind of learning institutions are the main reason why Kenya is having high number of half baked students who are joining the job market.

He said that is high time the central government together with the county governments worked together in streamlining the level of education in the country.

“It is a disgrace to see our higher learning institutions producing students who can not be productive in the job market,” he said.

Kibe said that institutions that enroll children from destitute families end up becoming money making entities against what the they outline while seeking registration.

He also urged parents not to take their children institutions that are not credited.

“These institutions have been taking advantage of destitute families and that is why parents need to take their children to recognized colleges, “he said.
