e-Citizen Fee Payment Will Lock Out Poor Students, Warns KUPPET

The Kenya Union of Post-primary Education Teachers (Kuppet) is urging the government to honor a court order that suspended the directive from the Ministry of Education mandating school fee payments through the e-Citizen Portal.

Secretary General Akello Misori of KUPPET emphasized the importance of proper public participation in decisions regarding technology implementation, despite the union’s support for technological advancement.

During a meeting with union representatives from Central Kenya in Kirinyaga, Akello expressed concerns that implementing the directive without public involvement could negatively impact students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds, potentially preventing them from accessing education.

Akello highlighted the prevalent practice in rural areas where parents pay school fees with agricultural produce, emphasizing the need for clarity on how such payments would be facilitated through the online portal.

He urged the Ministry of Education to address the issue of parents working in casual jobs to pay their children’s school fees, seeking clarification on how these transactions would be managed through the portal.
