Police to Arrest Teachers Conducting Vacation Classes

PoliceThe government of Kenya has formed a rapid response police unit to arrest teachers who are found conducting holiday classes this month.

According to the Education Principal Secretary, Dr Belio Kipsang, he is working with the Inspector General of Police, Joseph Boinnet to help in arresting and prosecute teachers found teaching during the August holiday.

He noted that “Tuition remains banned and therefore anyone conducting it is doing something illegal. We have engaged IG Joseph Boinnet to give us a rapid response team to arrest those found conducting holiday tuition.”

According to the law, teachers who are caught breaking the holiday tuition regulations are liable to a fine not exceeding Sh100,000 ($980) or imprisonment of one year or to both.

Kenya banned Holiday Tuition in 2008 because students were becoming stressed due to non-stop learning and needed more time away from school.
