CS Machogu Forced to Pause His Speech After What University Students Did When He Mentioned Fees

Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu was forced to pause his speech as there was a moment of confusion when he was addressing the university students.

The students thought CS Machogu during his address said the government was planning to increase university fees.

But Machogu who was speaking during a graduation ceremony at Kabianga University was responding to reports that there was a plan to increase university fees from the current Sh16,000 to Sh52,000 per semester.

Machogu was forced to pause his speech when the students started shouting as he was explaining the fees will not be increased.

“We have not said that the government has come to a decision that the university school fees should be increased from Sh16,000 which it is now to any other figure,” said Machogu as the university students started shouting.

The CS tried to listen to what the students were shouting before he tried to explain that the university fees they will be paying is Sh16,000 as the students in reaction said, “ohh”.

Machogu then turned to the university leaders who were sitting at the podium as he asked, “How much are they paying?” before the students are heard shouting back “Sh16,000”.

The CS then continued explaining that the government has not yet made any decision if it will increase the university fees or not.

“So what we are saying is government has not increased school fees and all that was done during the vice chancellors conference was people giving their views and as government we have not been able to make a decision on matters school fees,” said Machogu as a small section of the crowd made noise in disagreement.
