The debate on Higher Education Loans Board, HELB regarding the monthly penalties has taken center stage by Kenyans online on Monday.
KOT have thronged the trending hashtag, #CancelHelbPenalties to express their displeasure on the punitive Ksh.5,000 monthly penalty on overdue HELB loans.
HELB debates has always brought together to defend their infringed rights by the loaning government body.
Earlier this year, the former Education Cabinet Secretary, CS Amb Amina Mohamed was blasted for saying that police would be used to crack HELB defaulters.
In the wake of new CS, Prof George Magoha, comrades have teamed up to advocate for abolishing of the hefty monthly penalties.
Below are some posts from comrades who are affected both directly and indirectly.
