Govt Owes Schools $82 Million Unpaid Fees For Beam Students

Appearing before the James Makore-led Parliamentary Thematic Committee on Gender, Primary and Secondary Education Minister Professor Paul Mavima revealed that Government owes different schools $82m unpaid fees for students under the Basic Education Assistance Module (Beam) programme.

Said Mavima:

The total requested for 2014 (Beam) was $7 110 566, but only $6 950 715 was disbursed, in 2015 the total requirement was $25 274 960 and it was not met, in 2016, the requirement was $25 223 250 and was not met, and in 2017, the requirement was $25 223 250, and it also was not met, and the schools have to scrounge for resources while we wait for Beam funds. We owe fees for third term 2014 to 2017 and the total amount owed is $82 831 982, and this is very deleterious to the functions of our schools and the quality of education.
