Government urged to extend funding to private universities

Private universities have called on the Kenyan government to provide a fair funding model for all institutions of higher learning in the country, with a view to cushioning parents from the current hard economic times, reports Kenya News Agency.

Zetech University Vice-Chancellor Professor Njenga Munene has said Kenya cannot afford to have a divisive approach in education for the common good of not only students but also the country, especially at this time when the cost of living has hit the roof.

Speaking during the institution’s seventh graduation ceremony at their Mang’u Main Campus and while applauding the support the institution has received from the government so far, Munene said the fair treatment of all universities would make higher learning attractive, thus enabling the country to earn foreign exchange from international students.
