KU student union react to proposed varsity fee hike

KU

Kenyatta University Student Union, KUSA, has responded to reports in one of the dailies that had quoted Commission on University Education CEO saying there will be university fee increase from September 2014. KUSA Chairman, Lone Felix, states in a letter to students that he spoke to CUE CEO Professor Some who assured students that there were no such plans. Here is the letter:

 

KENYATTA UNIVERSITY STUDENTS’ ASSOCIATION

OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT

DATED: 16TH APRIL, 2014

RE: UNIVERSITY FEE INCREMENT:

On 14th April, 2014, The Business Daily carried a story suggesting that there will be new University fees in public universities by September.

The story quoted Prof. Some, CEO Commission on University Education and also the Cabinet Secretary ministry of Education.

Today, 16th April, 2014, I held discussions with Professor Some who states that he never stated that there shall be new university fees.

According to the Law, the University Act 2012, the Mandate of reviewing school fees lies with a University Fund Board which has not been established yet. According to Prof. Some, he told the journalist that when the Board is established, then perhaps they could review the school fees, but that is their decision to make.

I have also spoken with the Journalist, Gerald Andae from Business Daily, who insists that he only quoted what the CEO stated.

Even if the fund was established, they can only review University fees in consultation with the public Universities. The Vice Chancellors of public universities are unaware of this proposed review.

As Student Council leaders we are all in agreement that this cannot be allowed to stand. We shall meet today, under the Umbrella Body, Kenya University Students Organization (KUSO) to deliberate further on the matter and engage the ministry of Education.

Thank you for your continued feedback

Kind Regards
Lone Felix
KUSA PRESIDENT
