Illegal Colleges Back In Business

By a male, under 16 years old, in Nairobi, Kenya
Map of ILLEGAL COLLEGES BACK IN BUSINESS The government promised to shut down all the illegally operating colleges.This move brought a sigh of relief to many young people who were about to join colleges; but were worried they might end up in one of thes bogus institutions. However, i have noticed with a lot of dismay that the institutions that were shutdown are back in business and continue to dupe parents and students eager to further their education. Its disheartening to study for three years only to be told the college you went to was not accredibed and therefore the certificate you hold is worthless. How can the government do this and yet they have a certificate to satify them to be employed? Why should it wait until students have finished their course is then are told the college he/she went was not allowed or illegal? If they have to quite them, then the ministry concerned please crack the whip and stop unscrupolous enterpreneurs from ripping of more kenyans. This makes many kenyans to lose hope and jobs in our country. Read more.
