The government has been in the forefront in seeing that students get the best from the schools.This is because of the massive investments that it has done for them.The Free Primary and Secondary Schools Education fee can never be forgotten by many especially those who have benefited from this program.
It has continued to disburse the money for the students through schools even during the hard economic times like now that Covid-19 pandemic has financially incapacitated the country's economy.
Education Cabinet Secretary Professor Magoha has been greatly protective on the learners.Since the pandemic began,the CS has been warning the school Principals against sending the students home for fees.At one time,he directed them to go upto the homes of the students to find out the status of the family before sending the students home.
Just over the weekend,the principals pleaded with the CS to compel the parents to pay fees before the term ends.In responding to this request,the CS has now directed the principals to make the parents pay fees.He has said that the well-off parents are now taking advantage of the relaxed mode of fee payments.
This has now led to anxiety among the parents who should now prepare for their children to come back home soon for fees.The students who may be sent home must now prepare to cover the times that they will lose.All in all,the parents should now struggle to pay school fees since some principals may take the advantage from Professor Magoha's directive and demand even meagre fee arrears.
This directive comes at a time when the ministry of education has also disbursed ksh 9.3 billion to both primary and secondary schools.The secondary schools have received ksh 6.5 billion while the primary schools have received ksh 2.8 billion.
