Some school heads are reportedly fattening their pockets with school fees paid by non-formal students. Enterprising head teachers are getting as much as $2 500 per term.
In 2015 the Ministry of Education introduced the National Non-Formal Education Policy (NFE), which seeks to promote access to education for all.
The policy allows public schools to enrol non-formal students who either hot-sit or use school facilities only when formal students are not using them.
Secretary in the Ministry, Mrs Tumisang Thabela said that it was irregular for the school heads to fatten their pockets with fees paid since part of the fees has to cover administrative costs and pay the teachers.
