An official of the lecturers' union cautions universities against increasing fees

By Augustine Oduor | Oct 18th 2016 | 1 min read

An official of the lecturers' union has cautioned universities against increasing fees without first accounting for the monies they currently receive.

University Academic Staff Union (Uasu) Secretary General Constantine Wasonga yesterday said the universities should first reveal how much they collect from students in privately-sponsored programmes and how it is spent before increasing fees. He said the money collected by universities remains a top secret even as they demand additional funding.

"Where is the money they receive from Module II students? What do they do with it? They don't even pay staff," he said. He asked for the auditing of the accounts.
