The Ministry of Education has released the status of Free Day Secondary Education, FDSE, funds disbursement for the 2019 first tranche. According to the disbursement status some schools missed out on the disbursement for failing to update their details on the National Education Management Information System, NEMIS.
Following the disbursement of FDSE capitation for first term 2019, the following scenarios have emerged: Some schools had missing bank accounts on NEMIS,” reads, in part, a circular by Paul Kibet; for the Basic Education Permanent Secretary.
According to Kibet, other reasons that made some schools to miss out on the disbursement include: having zero enrollment on NEMIS, providing invalid bank accounts, having one bank account (instead of two) and interchanging their tuition and operation bank accounts. The Ministry released funds to schools last week meant for the first tranche. A total of Khs 36 Million was released to the schools’ accounts.
