Ministry Orders schools to settle Their Arrears With postal corporation
The Ministry of Education has directed County Directors of Education to ensure that schools have settled their arrears with the Postal Corporation.
A letter written from the State Department for Basic Education and signed by Paul Kibet for PS Kipsang Belio dated July 4, said the corporation owes schools payment for postal boxes.
The PS pointed out that this amounted to financial indiscipline by the schools, adding that it was unacceptable.
“This is to ask you to ensure that all schools in arrears settle their debts with the postal corporation immediately and in not more than one month from the date of this letter,” the letter reads in part.
He said the Corporation had also notified the Ministry that some schools have been sharing the boxes, an action that he frowned upon.
“This should stop forthwith as each school has its own allocation of resources,” he said.
The PS directed those sharing boxes to apply for the same within a month.
“A report on compliance to the Principal Secretary will be expected from you,” he said.
The letter was copied to the Post Master General John Tonui.
