The Higher Education Loans Board (HELB) through it's Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Mr. Charles Ringera has opposed the proposal by the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader Raila Odinga to make the HELB students loan a grant if he becomes president in 2022.

While reacting to this, Ringera stated that the government has already granted 43 Billion Kenya shillings to these University students and it was being paid through the Differentiated Unit Cost (DUC).

He added that HELB is also running a 237 Million Kenya shillings bursary fund for the students and he sharply opposed the plan by Raila Odinga to make the HELB loan's a grant arguing that it will kill it's Mission and force million's of students to miss University education.
