Professor George Magoha, who serves as Cabinet Secretary for Education, has proposed a new fee structure for universities. According to him, he desires for the tuition that university students pay to be over one hundred thousand dollars. He has claimed that Kenyans are not poor and are therefore able to pay university school fees of up to Ksh100,000 (about $10,000).
During his remarks at today's graduation ceremony at Chuka University, the outgoing CS underlined that there should be a review of the current tuition costs that are paid to colleges and that this review is very much needed.
He asserted that the pitiful sum was one of the elements that helped to create the current predicament of financial strain at tertiary schools.
His remarks came just a few days after the government unveiled its plan to reduce the amount that students pay for tuition at universities.
This came about as a result of complaints made by both students and their parents at a variety of educational institutions regarding the excessive costs of attendance. On the other hand, the economy of the country is expanding on a daily basis, which is leading to an increase in the requirements, which have consequently become significantly more expensive.
