Friday May 22, 2020 – Mt Kenya University Chief Executive Officer, Simon Gicharu, has announced the slashing of school fees by 30% in a bid to cushion parents and guardians from the effects of the Covid19 pandemic.
Speaking on Friday, Gicharu, through MKU Deputy Vice Chancellor Administration, Dr. Evans Mwiti, said it would be unfair for the University to charge full fees yet students have not been attending face to face classes.
He said most parents have suffered due to the effects of the pandemic and will be hard pressed to raise fees.
Mwiti said the University, in partnership with Telkom and Safaricom, introduced online teaching in their May/ August Semester to ensure that students complete their studies on time.
Dr. Mwiti, however, said that students who will be unable to access online services will be accorded an opportunity to complete their studies once learning resumes.
