Govt warns schools demanding forex
GOVERNMENT has issued a stern warning to schools after it emerged that some were demanding tuition fees in United States dollars.
Some top private schools have already sent out circulars to parents advising them to pay next term’s tuition in US dollars.
Parents fear more schools might follow the bandwagon.
Responding to questions from journalists after a media briefing, Primary and Secondary Education Secretary Dr Sylvia Utete-Masango warned schools to desist from making such demands saying it was a violation of Government policy.
“If there are schools asking for US dollars they will be brought to book because we have not received any policy to the contrary. We know that fees are being paid in local currency because people are getting their salaries in local currency.
