This comes days after the government directed parents of students in public national schools to pay their children's fees through the eCitizen online platform.

National schools have been directed to submit their bank details to enable parents to pay fees through the eCitizen platform.

The government plans to include more schools in the plan to pay fees via eCitizen.

The directive for secondary fees to be paid through the eCitizen platform is aimed at harmonizing the payment process.
