Tuition Free Fee Policy

District funds must be used for capacity building in schools

Kuman confirmed that an Open Member receives K10m for the district and 20 percent of that goes to education.

He said therefore every Member of Parliament (MP) has the responsibility to build the capacity of schools in their districts.

“The Government pays for school fees under the Tuition Free Fee Policy and we make sure that teaching and learning materials are at the schools.

“We make sure that the teachers are trained properly and are at school, that’s our responsibility,” Kuman said.
