15 Kenyan students who were allegedly receiving financial aid from the Nandi County government to continue their education in Finland are pleading for assistance after their sponsor failed to pay their tuition.
At the Lappeenranta-Lahti University of Technology LUT, the cohort claims they have missed class and have arrears of almost Ksh. 13.5 million (£90,000).
According to Raabia Hussain, they have been suffering at the university where they had gone to pursue bachelor’s and master’s degree programs in nursing and medicine since December 1.
He remarked, “Unfortunately, the scholarship criteria were not met by the Nandi government in terms of payment.
According to reports, some costs, including the flight, were the responsibility of the pupils.
“Why commit to sending the students abroad if you won’t fulfill all the requirements needed to facilitate them?” Hassain smiled.
Hussain stated that as a result of the circumstance, they are currently on the streets rather than in their homes or classrooms.
