Summary/Abstract:

Marva Mbukali, a first year Business student of Madaraka University was seated in front of a computer at Mt. Elgon Lab at 12:40pm struggling and still trying her best to key-in her assignments. It was Monday of the fourth week of the first semester for Academic Year 2004-2005 and she had two assignments due the next day. One was a 15-page summary report in Communication Skills I and the other was a 7-page document in Principles of Management. With only KSh150 remaining in her pocket for the rest of the month, she was wondering whether to submit her handwritten documents to her lecturers.
