It’s my hope that this email finds you in good health. First let me convey my gratitude to you in the way you are using your platform to fight social injustice. Alexsandar Solzhenits once said ‘In keeping silent about evil, is burying it so deep within us that no sign of it appears on the surface, we are implanting it, and it will rise up a thousand fold in the future. When we neither punish nor reproach evildoers, we are not simply protecting their trivial old age, we are thereby ripping the foundations of justice from beneath new generations.”
The aim of writing this this to you is the kind of dismay in parents that has emanated from abnormal increment of secondary school fees even after the Ministry of Education giving a directive that the ceiling of fees be 50,000 in national schools. For instance, my younger sister was admitted to Buruburu girls (a school that didn’t record even a single A Plain in the recently released KCSE) in form one. The fee structure that was accompanying the admission letter indicated that the fee would be 53000 in total for the whole year. But out of the blues, the kid closed school and the kind of fee structure she brought back home indicated the fee was a whopping Kshs. 93,000.00 as opposed to the figure indicated in admissions.
This was shocking to parents who only rely on few trees of tea leaves and can hardly make 5000 a month not withstanding the fact that they have other daughters and sons who equally need financial attention. This I’m sure is one case but there are tens of thousands who are suffering this same fate overseen by greedy school Principals.
Kindly highlight this as you would have spoken on behalf of an old mama in the village who could hardly speak a swahili word to air her grievances.
Long live Cyprian, You are our Che Guevara. Attached find the two contrasting fee statement.
