The issue of fee in Kemuan schools has been the subject of contention for a while now. This is because, parents are forced to fork out exorbitant fees to ensure that their children get quality education.
Earlier today, Kenyans woke up to the news that The Ministry of Education had lowered fees for children in the coming term. The fees is to be reduced by 8500 shillings for National Schools and 5500 for other schools countrywide.
Wahome Thuku, a popular blogger on one of the social media platforms has disclosed how much money he pays for his three kids. The exorbitant fees the blogger pays is something that Kenyans reacted to on the comments section.
These are the fees that the popular blogger pays for his three kids:
Class 8 pupil : 78,500 shillings per term.
Grade 5 pupil: 62,000 shillings per term.
PP1 Joining: 51,500 shillings per term.
He went on to disclose that all that money does not include other amenities that a student needs in the institution they are in.
Here are some of the reactions from Kenyans on this post:
Ngugi G Brian: And you spend most of your time here on Facebook.
Dancan Maina: This is fees for a certain school for four years. Let me keep my lanes.
Festus Kangali: 528 is per cost, not daily.
Blessed Karii: I need such blessings.
More Kenyans had this to say about the high fees:
Tui Mising: If Facebook were to shut down, your kids would go to public school.
Donna Khaoya: I know this school.
Fred Njagi: And they study a, bu, cu really?
