EDUCATION Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i has cautioned universities against admitting unqualified students, especially politicians who he said are keen to acquire certificates ahead of the next General Election.

“I am aware that the political season is here with us again and politicians are running to our institutions to obtain papers in the shortest time possible,” said Dr Matiang’i.

He went on: “Kindly note that all students admitted into your programmes must meet the minimum admission requirements and contact hours for teaching.”

The minister directed the Commission for University Education to monitor and ensure that universities adhere to admission guidelines.

Dr Matiang’i observed that the government will not allow higher education to be diluted.
