Magoha: Kenyans Aren't Poor, University Fee Should Be Ksh 100K Reactions

CS Magoha Speaking on Friday, October 14, at a graduation ceremony at Chuka University, the CS insisted that a review of the current tuition fees paid to universities was necessary.

The tough-talking CS opined that while vice-chancellors were aware of the financial gap, they were afraid of addressing the same with the learners and parents as the issue has always been politicised. 

Magoha, however, noted that fee increment should be done in consultation with all stakeholders including the students to ensure that the value of the new fee is reasonable and affordable.Magoha also made his stand clear on the proposed fee of Sh48,000 for government-sponsored students, saying the figure was too high and outrageous.

The cabinet secretary for the ministry of finance has backed the move to increase to the fees to cater for for the institutions needs. The minister suggestion that the government currently does not have the capacity to carry the burden of training a student of higher learning. According to statistics the cost of training one learner is about 200,000. The government pays 160,000 for each student sponsored by the government.
