How CS Amina errored in the handling of school funds

Ministry at fault over delay in release of funds

Education CS Amina Mohamed during a past media briefing

Treasury CS Henry Rotich on Tuesday stated that the Ministry of Education was at fault over the delay in release of funds to schools.

Rotich pointed out that the ministry led by CS Amina Mohamed had made a late request on the funds that led to the problem that institutions were facing.

The CS noted that the funds would be transferred to the schools before the end of the week.

 “We received a request from the ministry just last week. We will be paying before the end of this week,” remarked Rotich.

Students to miss funding

This comes a day after Education PS Belio Kipsang highlighted that 300,000 students would not receive education funding.

Kipsang explained that the students details was not available on the National Education Management Information System (NEMIS).

“We shall not disburse any capitation to students whose details schools have not put on NEMIS,” stated Kipsang.

The PS revealed that the ministry had released Sh30 billion to 2.6 million students for Free Day Secondary Education (FDSE) whose details had been captured on NEMIS.

The tough talking Kipsang further affirmed that the funds would only be transferred through the system and not in other way.
