A Narok legislator has warned chiefs and CDF officials against diverting the bursaries meant for students from poor families.
Narok West MP Gabriel Tongoyo, who distributed the funds at Ilmotiook Primary School said the funds were meant to ensure that bright students from needy families continue with their studies.
“Today we are distributing Sh17.2 million bursaries from CDF to needy students in all the four Wards in the constituency. Ilmotiook Ward which is the biggest gets Sh5.2 million while Naikarra, Mara and Siana Wards will each get Sh4 millio in this financial year,”said Tongoyo.
For transparency, the MP directed that the list of all the children set to benefit from the bursary fund be pinned in all the chiefs offices.
The first-time legislator who was elected on Chama Cha Mashinani (CCM) pledged to work in uniting the cosmopolitan constituency.
