HELB loan defaulters now have a 30- days grace period to clear their outstanding loan balances.
The Higher Education Loans Board is now breathing fire since it has threatened to publish names and photographs of all defaulters since the year 1975.
HELB NOTICE: PUBLISHING OF NAMES AND PICTURES OF LOAN DEFAULTERS
The Higher Education Loans Board, HELB wishes to notify the general public and all loan defaulters that the HELB student loan is a government debt that should be repaid according to the terms and conditions on which it was advanced.
Unfortunately, some HELB beneficiaries have failed to honour their part of the bargain despite previous official communication addressed to them.
These defaulters are thus denying other needy Kenyan students a chance of accessing higher education.
Kindly note that the names and pictures of all HELB loan defaulters since 1975 hall be published in all mainstream media- newspapers after 30days from the date of this notice.
