Chief of Staff and Head of Public Service, Felix Koskei, says the new university funding model is fair and will bring equity in access to higher education.

Koskei said university fees will now be pegged on a parent’s/guardian’s ability to afford the fees.

“University fees are now affordable since parents will be individually assessed on their ability to afford,” he said today at St. Mary’s Tachasis Girls Secondary School, Tindiret, Nandi County.

Koskei also called on Kenyans to take advantage of the newly-launched Open University of Kenya to access higher education cheaply online.

The Head of Public Service urged the area residents to diversity their farming activities by embracing coffee growing as well as dairy farming. 

“That’s the only way you are sure of getting money in your pockets,” he said.

Koskei directed the security agencies in the region to intensify the fight against alcoholism and drug abuse, which he said was destroying generations of youth.

He also warned that the government will take firm action against rogue road contractors, as he said that the Songhor-Timboroa would be redone following shoddy work by the previous contractor.

Koskei who attended prayers for students from four secondary schools in the area, encouraged students to study hard since “education is the greatest equalizer.”
