Education Stakeholders Call for Suspension of Fees Increment


Kuppet secretary general Akelo Misori, MPs Tom Odege (Nyatike) and Adipo Okuome (Karachuonyo) have asked the government to suspend its plan to increase fees for higher education.

The presidential task force on education reforms recommended the increment to help higher learning institutions stay financially afloat.

The task force also recommended measures aimed at improving the quality of higher education in the country.

However, Misori argued that the fees would cause a significant burden on parents, and Odege added that it would only benefit financially well-off families.

They urged members of parliament to pass legislation to prevent the government from increasing university and college fees.

Odege promised to introduce a bill in the legislature to force the government to refrain from raising the fees.

In addition, the stakeholders called on the government to ensure students graduating from technical institutions are given working tools to become self-employed.
