Student leaders this morning are mobilizing their comrades to storm the Higher Education Loans Board offices at Anniversary Towers along University way. The students, a majority who are from the Univeristy of Nairobi and the Technical University of Kenya, are going to demonstrate against the delayed disbursement of funds to the students.
HELB, however, has asked for patience as it is in the process of disbursing the funds.
“The board informs all the university students who had applied for second and subsequent loans that we have started disbursing loans for the semester that commenced in August/September 2015. Disbursement is expected to continue till Wednesday 30th September 2015 when students are expected to have received funds in their accounts,” read a statement by HELB.
