Parents cry foul over school fees hike

Parents are now seeking President Uhuru Kenyatta’s intervention on school fees guidelines.

They claim education officials have failed to ensure the set guidelines are implemented.

Kenya National association of Parents (KNPA) Secretary-General Musau Ndunda said the government should not give new guidelines but instead focus on implementing those issued last year.

“We are writing to President Kenyatta through the Cabinet Secretary for Education Fred Matiang’i so that we can meet him and tell him the truth. And if he invites us now, we are ready to go to State House,” said Mr Ndunda at a press conference of Saturday.
