Raila, has in the past assured university students that they would not pay back the education loans should he ascend to power in 2022 as he would convert the loans into grants.

 

“I said that when we take over the government, we will convert the Higher Education Loans Board (HELB) into a grant,” said Raila.

 

Justifying his pledge, the opposition leader explained that every child born in the country, irrespective of the socio-economic status of their parents, will get equal opportunities from the nursery, primary to university education.

That’s why I am saying today when I get to power, HELB will be a grant, not a loan,” Raila told the students.

 

The plan was however, debunked by HELB CEO Charles Ringera who stated that the government is already running a Ksh43 billion grant through the Universities Fund (UF).

 

“This is money is paid to students in universities through the Differentiated Unit Cost (DUC) and they do not pay it back,” Ringera explained.
