Education CS Dr. Ezekiel Machogu has issued a warning to headteachers and secondary school principals against increasing school fees during this rainy season.

Speaking in Kitale yesterday during the national tree planting exercise Machogu said his ministry was aware that the ongoing rains had destroyed textbooks and important school certificates in some parts of the country.

“I have seen the destruction that the floods have caused among our schools, mostly in textbooks. There are schools where textbooks, exercise books, and certificates have been destroyed by water,” he stated.

With regard to displaced families Machogu also stated that parents should be allowed to send their children back to school even without school uniforms and given ample time to provide their children with the same.

He strictly cautioned headteachers and secondary school principals not to increase school fees, warning that he would personally step in to take disciplinary action.

“I am asking parents to allow their children to go to school even without the school uniform, as they will be allowed to continue learning until you are able to buy the school uniform. If there is a school headteacher or principal who is planning to increase school fees when the government has not approved such an increase, he must go home. I will personally sack him,” he stated.

Several schools in the country are still submerged under floods. More than 45,000 families have been displaced and in some areas the affected people are taking refuge and camping in schools.

Nairobi City County is one of the most severely affected regions.

It is not yet clear whether the government directive will be wholly implemented countrywide.
