Education cabinet Secretary George Magoha has cautioned teachers not to turn students away as they report back back school.
This was in response to the concerns raised by headteachers the tend to paralyse school operations as schools reopen for the beginning of second term starting Tuesday, July 12.
Speaking in Kisii county, Magoha assured headteachers that the government is set to release funds by the end of the week so as to enable the smooth running of the institutions.
Headteachers had complained about late funding from the government and thus others considered hiking school fees in order to cater for the expenses.
The duration CS urged the parents to do their part in paying fees to support the education programme.
“We have school feeding programmes in day schools, let us support those critical cases . We must admit the students to school and give parents an opportunity to pay school fees. Those who have already cleared paying fees for our children have gone an extra mile to pay fees for other needy cases, which is a welcome move, Magoha stated.
The CS said that the government had already imported maize to caution schools against the rise in cost of food and told politicians to stop politicising the issue.
