TRUTH ABOUT THE 14 BILLION RELEASED TO SCHOOLS AHEAD OF #Schoolsreopening IN KENYA

HOW MAGOHA AND MINISTRY OF EDUCATION LIE TO KENYANS ABOUT DISBURSMENT OF FREE EDUCATION FUNDS

By Peter Amunga.

This morning, we are waking up to headlines that Ministry of Education has released over 14 billion to schools to carter for free day and secondary schools. Media is hyping the release of these funds as if all the 14 billion is going to one school. The ministry has only released a very small fraction of money owed to over 66,000 schools in Kenya. The MOE has followed it with a circular telling principals how the money will be spent.

ONLY 20 % of what was to be paid this year to schools as FPE CAPITATION has been released. 20% is a DROP in the ocean considering the bills schools have accrued during the covid 19 period. It is like you miss your salary for one year, then your employer pays you 20 % of it and gives no reason or explanation.

Schools are institutions with bills that are constant. Electricity, water, maintainance, BOM teachers salaries, stationery etc.

Gullible Kenyans will be made to imagine that 20% of the capitation is able to offer quality education. Many will release their kids to schools saying, .. serikali imelipia kila kitu.. They are mistaken. This kind of piecemeal release of funds to schools leads to compromised standards of education.

The circular posted below clearly SHOWS THE FOLLOWING GAPS.

1: No money sent for payment of BOM teachers yet the Cs Magoha said that it would be captured.

2: No money for Covid-19 mitigation. Thermal gun sells at ksh 4000. One machine to be used by 60 pupils. Desks for social distancing, extra books, issolation rooms, water points, soap.. etc.. NOT FACTORED.
Sanitizer 250ml goes for ksh 400.each. Hand washing equipment are also expensive e.g 1000lts tank sells at 7500 while the stand sell at 4500.yet they should be many in school.

3: According to the circular This is capitation for 3rd term

We are all aware that the partial opening of schools is indicated in a revised school calender as second term. 2nd term is 16 to 17 weeks.
That second term is longer than 3rd term which is usually 8 weeks of teaching. Yet the ministry sends money to schools indicating that it is for a fraction of 3rd term.
So where is money for 2nd term? Where are principals going to get money to pay workers, constructions, maintainance etc?

CONCLUSION
Who is fooling who? Does Magoha really want to see our public schools survive? Parents, wake up.. and question this capitation. Demand for truth from your government. This is a perfect example of a ministry that is compromising the standards of education in Kenya.
