#Kitui: Is your secondary sch certificate being withheld due to unpaid fees balances?
Deputy President William Ruto in the past days warned school heads that they risk prosecution if they continue withholding certificates due to unpaid fees balances. It seems that this has not been put into action.
Ruto’s directive to schools to release certificates and diplomas to students and pupils has kicked off a storm and discontent amongst school heads
Kitui County school heads have continuously punished by holding the certificates for school leavers since many cannot secure jobs or further their education without the certificates.
One student in kitui county has been denied her secondary school certificates 2 years after completing her secondary school education. Yumbe day secondary school principal Mr Mureithi who refused to be interviewed told the girl that he will not release the certificate until her fee balance is cleared. Yumbe mixed secondary school is district school in Kitui County
We will be writing an open letter to Deputy President William Ruto regarding the same. In case you are experiencing the same kindly comment with YOUR NAME, NAME OF THE SCHOOL, NAME OF SCHOOL HEAD, LOCATION OF THE SCHOOL, YEAR OF COMPLETION
