Education Cabinet Secretary Dr. Ezekiel Machogu has told public universities and other institutions higher learning to come up with innovations that can help them remain afloat due to dwindling funding.

The CS said the government will not change its new higher education funding model for universities anytime soon, noting the new approach had addressed challenges that universities and TVET institutions have been grappling with. “Some of you are yet to move out of your comfort zones to become part of the solution to the problems that afflict our universities,” said the CS.

Machogu was speaking in Mombasa when he opened the 2024 leadership training workshop for university’s Vice Chancellors and Principals of constituent colleges. He confirmed that the government had disbursed Sh23.6 billion for funding university education of first year students who sat the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exam in 2022 and have been placed at various universities under the new funding model. The new funding model classifies students into 5 bands depending on the families’ level and needs added the CS.
