    Ksh100 School Fee arrears Drive KCPE Candidate to Suicide

    Published on

    A Class 8 pupil in a Naivasha village committed suicide only two weeks before the start of the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education(KCPE).

    The 13-year-old youngster killed himself after failing to pay Ksh100 school fees for teachers.

    The KCPE candidate was sent home many times by school administration, according to the grieving mother who spoke to the media on Saturday, November 12.

    “I came searching for him, but all I found was his dead body. I called my neighbors, and they verified that he had passed away,” mourned the mother.

    She asked the government to hire more teachers for the school so that parents wouldn’t have to pay so much money.

    She said that because of the teacher shortage, the school where her kid was enrolled had to hire more teachers at the parents’ expense.

    Moreover, she lamented the high expense of living, saying that she was already having trouble making ends meet.

    An increase in the number of teachers hired by the Teachers Service Commission has been pledged by President William Ruto in an effort to address the shortfall.
    By January 2023, the President promised to hire 58,000 more educators.
