MP releases Ksh60M for bursaries in his constituency

Bomachoge Borabu MP Obadiah Barongo.

An MP in Kisii has released Ksh60 million for bursaries to students in both universities and secondary schools, which was shared equally among the constituency’s four Wards.

The Bomachoge Borabu MP presided over the distribution of the funds targeting those from poor families to ease their burdens of school fees.

In the distribution exercise which took place at the constituency office, the MP said all who deserve help in Magenche, Bokimonge, Boochi and Bombaba will get assistance.

“We advised our committee members to ensure that every student who applied for the education bursary fund receives a fair treatment,” he said.

He told the beneficiaries to work hard and realize their success goals so that they can assist their families to come out of poverty later.

Emphasizing that poverty is the main cause of misery in any country, Barongo asked students joining university to enroll for Science courses because of their prestige.

The MP reminded parents that it was their onus to guide their children in character development by living exemplary lives, taking a swipe at those who involve their children in unethical activities like sending then to buy cigarettes and beer.

Elsewhere, students from Bobasi Constituency studying in Maseno and Kisii universities have blamed the area NGCDF office for delayed funding of their education.
