The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

Par­ents of pupils at Kiem­beni Bap­tist Pri­mary School, Mom­basa, have ac­cused the head teacher of charg­ing exam fees. Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta in August waived na­tional exam fees for all pri­vate schools. The par­ents want Ones­mus Mwat­suma trans­ferred and dis­ci­plinary ac­tion taken against him. Mwat­suma al­legedly charges Sh200 per can­di­date for reg­is­tra­tion for the Kenya Cer­tifi­cate of Pri­mary Ed­u­ca­tion exam. The school has 240 can­di­dates. Mwat­suma could not be reached for com­ment as our calls went unan­swered. “Our chil­dren have been turned into cash cows,” a par­ent said.
