“It is alleged that you charged extra levies to students in the years 2020 and 2021 contrary to the Basic Education Act, Section 29 while you were the Principal Nakuru Boys High School. Consequently you are hereby interdicted with effect from September 1, 2021,” the letter highlighted

“It is true Mr Yator has been interdicted because he is alleged to have charged extra fees contravening Ministry of Education guidelines. He has been asked to defend himself within 21 days, in writing.

 

He will also be given an opportunity to defend himself in person before the commission,” revealed the official.

 

During the interdiction period, TSC has directed Mr Yator to be reporting to the nearest sub-county education office at least once a month.

 

 

 

Mr Yator has served as the principal of Nakuru Boys High School – a national school for more than four years.

 

Early last year, parents accused the principal of illegally hiking remedial fees from Sh2,500 per term to Sh7,500.

 

Prof Magoha also ordered all public primary schools not to charge anything except for meals, which should be done voluntarily, depending on parents’ financial ability.

 

He warned offenders would face dire consequences. Evidently now is the type for pay back.
