Kenyans have come out to criticize the government for moving with speed to admit more than 10000 students to private universities. The new developments started when parents to newly admitted USIU-Africa students staged a protest to decry of the huge fees charged by the institution. The parents said that government sponsored students were paying five times higher than students in public universities.

Several Kenyans both offline and online have claimed that the university was allegedly given a chance by the government to loot from parents. Speaking to Magazine Reel, one of the parents said that the varsity charges close to 7000 shillings per unit and that government sponsored students still end up paying close to 80000 shillings per academic year which is higher than the 20000 shillings others are paying in public universities.

Some of the students also told the News Desk that USIU has a fixed fee structure for all students and that every student is treated equally. The students told their colleagues to apply for inter university transfer and move to affordable public universities closer to them.

Self sponsored students at USIU have though taken issues with individuals who are against the institution’s charges arguing that no one was forced to join the prestigious institution. The students have told their colleagues to roll according to their class and stay away from constant criticism.
