P.S One day to go to the deadline of submitting your views on the Harmonized Draft Constitution (HDC). Although some civil society groups are lobbying for an extension on the time, there is no guarantee that our courts will agree to it
Recent media publications have reveled that free primary education may have lost up to Sh6 billion through corruption. The mega-scandal potentially puts the future of 8.6 million primary school pupils in jeopardy and increases the likelihood of placing the school fees burden on the parents who are already groaning under the weight of heavy taxes and high cost of living.
The money had been budgeted for constructing of new classrooms and buying text books for poor students in poverty ravaged districts. Already, 25 officers at the ministry have been suspended over the scandal.
WHAT OUR PRESIDENT HAS TO SAY..
President Kibaki today vowed that no one would compromise Kenya’s free primary education programme, and ordered action on Education ministry officials involved in graft. The president directed relevant government arms, including Kenya Anti Corruption Commission to take stern action on corrupt officials in the FPE programme.
