Of late there have been several complains from University Comrades that the fee is hiked and the accommodation fee also. An example is the University of Nairobi which have doubled the fee in all of its courses country wide.
Since in Universities there are needy students who may like to apply HELB loans, the funds from HELB cannot now satisfy them due to the increase in fee and accommodation fee.
Peter Kaluma has taken a step by advocating for the review and reforms in the Higher Education Loans Board
"We must review and reform the Higher Education Loans Board.HELB allocation must be raised; Students should get all the money applied.Underage students should apply using University Admission Number. HELB should be disbursed before beginning of Semesters.", Peter Kaluma stated in an official tweet.
