The Kenya National Parents Association Chairman Nicholas Maiyo now says
Bus fare, motivation fees and other additional luxurious is not part of the school.
Speaking to the press in Eldoret Maiyo said parents should not pay such additional levies.
“As parents, we support fully the call by CS Education George Mgaoha of sending home students who haven’t paid their fees but we are against parents being charged additional levies such as transport, bus fee among others,” said Maiyo while speaking to the press in Eldoret town.
This comes after CS Education George Magoha allowed principals to send students who had not paid fees home for the same.
“Our concern is that his statement will be a license to the principals to send children home on extra levies some parents have called me saying they have been forced to sh 5,000 bus fee, Sh 5,000 for motivation. This is uncalled for and we will not allow it to happen under our watch,” Maiyo added.
He called on parents across the country not to pay such levies saying they should only pay fees according to the fee structure.
“We are calling on all parents to clear third term school fees to give us evidence so that we can present evidence on extra levies to the CS Education. We will name and shame such schools,” The Kenya National Parents Association Chairman said.
He further said children from poor backgrounds should not be sent home because they haven’t paid fees as directed by the Cabinet Secretary for Education and any principal who will do contrary will face the full force of the law.
