via The Standard | Online Edition :: New Sh5.5b puzzle hits Jogoo House school funds.

And make no mistake about how badly needed these funds are. The reality remained during my time in Nairobi in 2007-2008 that even in the capital the public schools were treated by parents as a last resort. Classroom conditions were very poor even where the exteriors were brightly painted, sometimes by advertisers. And of course no electricity. These funds were certainly needed.
