Nairobi - The minister for Higher Education Minister Margaret Kamar on Thursday directed the Commission for Higher Education to revisit and re-inspect the quality of programmes offered in all the registered private universities, constituent colleges, middle level colleges and other tertiary institutions.
Speaking to Daily Nation, Kamar said the move was in a bid to ensure standards were not compromised by some institutions which had failed to deliver quality services as promised after being registered by the commission.
Kamar said that public universities, would be exempted from inspections because they had established standards recognized by both her ministry and the commission.
Ezra Maritim, the Commission chairman said that Kenya was faced with the challenge of higher education being commercialised at the expense of quality.
