The government has already released capitation funds for primary and secondary schools.

Speaking in Kiambu County on Tuesday, Education Cabinet Secretary Prof. George Magoha said the government had released sh.4 billion a capitation for primary schools and sh.14.4 billion for secondary schools on Monday.

“Yesterday evening, we released funds for both primary and secondary schools so that schools don’t suffer financially. Again, anybody who is bold enough to chase a child away from school because of development fees shall be dealt with vigorously and severely without fear or favor,” said Magoha.

CS Magoha said the money has been reflected in the schools’ accounts, adding that they hoped all schools will be sorted by Thursday.
