He indicated that the government allocated little amount of money to HELB and that little amount money does not come in time. Some students are forced to discontinue their studies due to delay of HELB loan.
Jomo also noted that he was saddened by the the president’s refusal to approve the HELB bill that could benefit students. He said that they were going to call for a national strike. He also expressed his anger over how some of university of Nairobi students and student leaders have handled the whole HELB issue. He posted “Why did university of Nairobi which is used to protests not demonstrate when the president declined the HELB bill? They have been compromised by the government and now they are quiet. They only call for demos when it benefits them.”
