Several schools in Rongo district may be forced to close early because of lack of funds.
Head teachers said they are undergoing serious financial difficulties which may force them to send students home soon if the government does not come in to help.
Speaking to the press in Rongo town Knut executive secretary Nathan Gari said the Ministries of Finance and Education failure to disburse funds to schools in good time has greatly hampered operations.
"We have some schools which have been hard hit schools and now cannot afford to buy learning materials such as chalk, exercise books or pay workers," said Gari.
The official said it is unfair for the government to expect head teachers to run the schools with money they get from parents.He called on the two ministries to explain why they have not wired the money to schools.
Rongo district education officer John Langat said classes in some schools have been paralysed."The problem is not only being felt in Rongo, but nationally and the government will soon disburse the funds," said Langat.
Langat assured parents that schools will not be closed before the terms ends because the government will ensure funds are channelled on time.
