The allowances are aimed at helping students on government sponsorship find suitable accommodation before the semester begins. Unfortunately, they always come at the end of the semester, if not during holidays.
So I wonder how a poor manâ€™s child will manage because hostel fees are too high â€“ some demand as much as sh350,000, which only a few students can afford. Could the concerned authorities do something about this?
Why does MUK delay allowances?
