National Super Alliance (Nasa) co principal Musalia Mudavadi has promised varsity students access to Higher Education Loans (Helb) in two weeks rather than the usual six months when Nasa gets into power.
He said that the move was reached due to the fact that students suffer a lot from late delivery of the loan cash especially when in session.
“Higher Education Loan will be disbursed in two weeks’ time after loan application to ensure that our students do not suffer when in session,” the Amani National Congress (ANC) leader, Mudavadi said.
He was addressing supporters at his political background in Vihiga on Saturday, June 24, 2017.
This is another promise that the Nasa team has made concerning the education sector after promising to offer free secondary education to all students in the country as from September 2017, immediately they win the August 8th General elections.
Nonetheless, the Jubilee party (JP) has also promised to offer free secondary education as from January 2018 when they retain their position in the government.
Mudavadi also stressed that Nasa was not looking for a power sharing means to get into power but were eyeing to be the next government in office contrary to what Jubilee was alarming.
“We (Nasa) want to be the next government in office and we are not intending to use any method to get into power through power sharing ways. Jubilee party mark that!” Mudavadi exclaimed.
The alliance has also promised to deal with the high cost of living prevailing in the country, offer job employment to the youths and even reduce the high cost of fuel for affordability by the citizens.
“We will reduce the high cost of food commodities in the country, provide jobs for our youths, and even reduce the price of petrol and diesel in the country,” Nasa presidential flag bearer Raila Odinga said.
