Governor Joseph Ole Lenku has released Ksh55 million for bursaries as the first batch from a Ksh175 million kitty.

The Kajiado County Government has released Ksh55 million for term one as part of a Ksh175 million allocated to bursaries and scholarships this Financial Year (FY).

Speaking during the release of the funds, Governor Joseph Ole Lenku said the county is committed to promoting education through equitable distribution of the bursaries and scholarships.

Lenku said the county will soon create another category of beneficiaries who will benefit from mini scholarships (or enhanced bursaries) to reach out to more students who are struggling to complete studies even after benefitting from the normal bursaries.

Kajiado Governor Joseph Ole Lenku releases Ksh55 million for this term’s bursary at his offices.

The governor called on school principals not to send students with fees balances home as the county continues to support the needy ones.

The county also released recently Ksh20 million to the county’s 25 Wards in the first phase.

Lenku had promised full sponsorship for students who scored B Plain and higher in the 2023 KCSE.

Kajiado County is among regions that have not reached the 100 per cent transition target for form 1 as parents are unable to raise the fees required.
