School Headteachers Raise Voice Over School Tuition Money

High schools reopening is nearing and signs of tough times are clearly ahead. The school headteachers have raised alarm over empty accounts in school for tuition needs

The school heads noted that their institutions did not have cash as the funds released for free day secondary for the first term did not include per capital for Form Ones, who reported in August. 

Kenya Secondary Schools Heads Association (KeSSHA) Chairman Kahi Indimuli, notes that schools had to use the funds meant for the other students to run the institutions. This was because most parents had not yet cleared the previous term fees due to the tough economic times caused by the pandemic. 

To ensure that schools run smoothly, Indimuli said that the government should change the current plan and release funds before the reopening of schools.

“The culture of reopening schools and having to wait for funds to be released always puts school heads in a very difficult situation,” Indimuli noted. 

Ministry of Education Communications Director Kennedy Buhere calmed the teachers' feats -adding that the money will be released as soon as Treasury releases the funds. 

“It is not that we have sat on the money.The money must first be released by Treasury, there should be no cause of alarm” Buhere noted.
