Gerehu Secondary: Funds Missing

Funds earmarked for Gerehu Secondary School under the tuition free subsidy have gone missing.

Principal, Martin Kenehe, raised the alarm bells after realizing a shortfall of K450, 000.


Initially, the school was expected to receive over K1.6 million.


Principal of Gerehu Secondary, Martin Kenehe, wants to know where the missing funds are.


He says, if there have been some errors made, then it must be explained to the school.


The school was expected to receive K1, 060,848 as first payment. But it only received K610, 808. This amount also does not correspond to the K773, 175 published in the papers that the school was supposed to receive.


Despite these shortfalls, the school is moving ahead with its expansion program for this year.


Mr. Kenehe said, the school is poised for change under this program.


K3.8m has been allocated for 6 units’ teachers housing, state of the art computer lab and six new classrooms.


Gerehu Secondary has seen an increase in student numbers under the tuition free education policy.


The developments soon to be taking place will ease this burden and complement the government’s vision 2050 for an educated population.
