CS Machogu Speaks on Junior Secondary Fees

 In the country, there are over one million students who sat for their KCPE exams. Further, the exam was announced by the Cabinet Secretary of Education a few days ago. Further, some students performed well while others failed by getting low marks. Further, the government has revealed that all students will move to high schools, including those who got zero marks.

According to the source, new details have just emerged about junior secondary schools in the country. As per the latest updates shared by a well-known source this hour, it has finally been confirmed by the Cabinet Secretary of Education that parents will not pay for junior secondary schools in the country as the government has allocated billions of dollars to facilitate the program.

Through his statement shared by TV47 this hour, CS Ezekiel Machogu has confirmed that every student will get Ksh 15000 to facilitate free learning in the country. Further, he has revealed that no public school in the country will be allowed to charge grade 7 learners in the country ahead of reopening. I quote his statement from the source: "President William Ruto has directed Treasury to set aside KSH15,000 per learner as capitation to facilitate free learning in all public schools." In total, the government will spend Ksh 9.6 billion on learning in junior secondary schools this calendar year. No school should charge any fees for grade 7 learners unless such schools have boarding wings," CS Machogu has confirmed.

These are good news for all Kenyans, especially those who have seventh-grade learners, because the government has confirmed that it will not pay school fees.
