Secretary General, Kenya National Association of Parents, Mr. Musau Ndunda delivers his message on behalf of parents.
BY SAM ALFAN.
The Kenya National Parents Association has challenged the Commission for University Education, the Office of the President, Cabinet Secretary for Education professor Jacob Kaimenyi among other respondents in court for upgrading Kaimosi Teachers College into a constituent college of Masinde Muliro University.
The association argues the upgrading is contrary to the law and it has rendered teachers,tutors and students of Kaimosi boys,girls and Kaimosi Institute of Technology as trespassers.
Over 1000 students from Kaimosi Institute of Technology, Kaimosi Boys , Kaimosi Girls schools and primary schools are on the verge of being branded trespassers if the institute housing all of them is upgraded into a constituent college of Masinde Muliro University.
According to the Kenya National Parents Association, which has challenged the matter in court, the ownership of the land belonging to the institute has been transferred to Masinde Muliro University.
The applicant told the court that this will affect the fate of more than 400 young people who join the institution annually as a middle level college and who miss out on university admission.
Other respondents are Vihiga County Governor and Hamisi MP Charles Gimose.The case will be heard on the 3rd of September at the Kakamega High-Court.
