Ruto directs Kaimenyi to issues fees guidelines

08 February 2015, 07:48 Joseph Njung'eh

Nairobi - Deputy President William Ruto Saturday directed the Cabinet Secretary in charge of Education, Jacob Kaimenyi to issue fee guidelines for Secondary Schools to cushion parents from exploitation by school management boards and heads.

He said this will enable the government to have a clear benchmark on matters affecting fee structure so that parents do not get stressed by overcharged schools.

Ruto said it defeats logic for a famous International University to charge KES 80 000 per semester while Secondary Schools charge over KES 100 000 per student on first admission.

“This is outright exploitation of the poor parents and it must be stopped forthwith once the guidelines am demanding are issued,” he said.

Ruto stated that day schools across the country should not charge more than KES 5 000 since the government has already increased subsidies.

“The government has increased the subsidies to 40 percent in all primary schools and 35 percent in Secondary Schools. This shows the government’s clear commitment towards making education affordable and accessible to as many children as possible,” said Ruto.

He further said government was in the process of establishing Technical Training Institutes in all the constituencies across the country.

Ruto made the remarks at St. Phillips Secondary School in Baricho, Ndia constituency during bursary fundraising for bright children from Kirinyaga County.
