"I Lost Appetite" Widow Whose Child Risks Being Deported From Finland Says, Blames County Government

Uasin Gishu county governor Jonathan Bii has denied claims that the county government has failed to pay school fees for over 200 students who went to study in Finland in 2021.

Hon Bii firmly stated that the county government had no obligation to pay school fees and it was only facilitating processing of travel documents and air tickets to Finland for the students.

He said that parents will have to pay school fees by December 2023 or else their children will be sent back to Kenya.

The families of the students now want a step to be taken since they had sold properties to raise the cash needed to cater for travel expenses.

Esther Muree, a mother to one of the affected students said that she sold a piece of land and paid 800,000 Kenyan shillings to the county government.

When she heard that her child risks coming back home for lack of school fees, she broke into tears even lost appetite and has been unable to eat properly wondering why there was no proper communication before her child went to Finland. She is a widow and had hoped that her child would get a good job after studying abroad.

According to Governor Bii the money that was paid by all the 202 parents was used to pay for Visa, fees for the first semester and accomodation.
