Parents and students in institutions of higher learning have received a shocker following a unanimous decision arrived at by Treasury officials, National assembly’s education committee and key education stakeholders of hiking fees from the current shillings 16,000 to 48,000.

The decision was made in a meeting convened yesterday evening in Mombasa by the parliamentary education committee, vice-chancellors, treasury officials and education stakeholders.

The national assembly’s education and research committee chairperson who doubles up as Busia County women representative Florence Mutua acknowledged that the current charges have not been revised since 1989 despite the rise in cost of running operations in institutions of higher learning.

To shield parents from possible exploitation, madam Mutua intimated that the higher education loans board will consequently increase allocations per student.
