The government has ruled out issuance of Higher Education Loans Board (HELB) funds to students who join university while they are under 18.

Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha yesterday said the national ID is a mandatory document in a HELB loan application.

To ensure the loan application is only accessed by Kenyan citizens, the CS said, all applicants’ national Identity Card numbers are validated against Integrated Population Registration System (IPRS).

“The law of contract constrains persons under the age of 18 from entering in a contractual agreement, including loan agreements. This poses a risk of non-recovery of loans disbursed to minors as disputes may arise on account of contravening provisions of Law of Contract Act,” Magoha (right) told the National Assembly Education committee.

During the meeting, MPs demanded an explanation from the CS on why the release of HELB funds had delayed for students joining universities and other institutions of higher learning for academic year 2021/2022.
