BOGUS COLLEGES IN MACHAKOS SHUT DOWN BY MINISTRY



Development and Social Work students have protested over the poor quality of services rendered to them at the institution.

The students disclosed that they paid for exams but the management failed to remit the exam fee to the Kenya National Examinations Council.

They further claimed the authorities failed to convey the examination dates and timings to them. “We’re getting a raw deal from this institution and we’re calling on the management to up its game for we’re making sacrifices so that we can have good college education,” students told the press

The rowdy students also demanded that the management refunds the money they have been paying for exams. This is the third case since last year.
Diploma students had paid Sh9,600 while certificate students deposited Sh7,400 but the management failed to honour its pledge.

“We have enough evidence that they failed to have a direct link with the KNEC. Does it mean that we filled fake documents from the exam body,” one of the students asked.
Some students who declined to be named for fear of victimisation said they were calling for the intervention of the government since some the institutions are bogus.

Students revealed that the entire management was in somewhat ‘a business venture’ as they were ever formulating new college requirements without realising any positive achievements.
