The Kenya Human Rights Commission (KHRC) and two others have filed a case at the Milimani Law Courts seeking to stop the new higher education funding model.
They argue that the new Higher Education Fund will lock out many students from getting university funds.
Similarly, they argue that the funding model is discriminatory because of the requirement that a student must be above the age of 18 to apply for funding.
According to them, the funding model is a breach is the right to access information.
It is their argument that the president has no powers to make law by himself arguing that the president violated the law in launching the program without following due process.
They claim that the funding violated millions of Kenyans in their quest for quality and affordable education.
