It is still uncertain whether government sponsored students repatriated back to the country will continue with their education in various regional institutions in 2021.
Speaking before the Public Accounts Committee (PAC), Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Education and Human Resources (MEHRD), Franco Rodie (Phd) says there will only be certainty once COVID-19 is no longer a threat.
Rodie says at the moment there is still uncertainty surrounding COVID-19.
“If we keep those students abroad, we have to sustain them and that is one of our difficulties. Everything is all about money. If we have enough funds, then that might be an alternative”, Rodie says.
He says if COVID-19 continues to pose a threat to people’s lives in 2021, “students will definitely remain in the country.”
