All elementary and secondary school heads have been ordered by the government to release any student certificates they may have in their possession.
Additionally, the ministry has advised schools against imposing any fees before making the records public. This is stated in a circular from Dr. Julius Jwan, principal secretary for the ministry of education, instructing all county directors of education to make sure the directive is followed.
The introduction of additional fees, withholding of KCPE/KCSE certifications, and providing unauthorized instruction over the weekends and during school breaks have all been discouraged by the Ministry of Education, according to Jwan.
The CS claims that the government has provided free primary education and free daytime secondary education over the years to help students from disadvantaged families.
According to Dr. Jwan, the ministry has been inundated with complaints from guardians and parents whose children have not received the required certificates.
