Dozens of needy learners got a boost after bursary cheques worth KSh50 million were handed over to them in Borabu Constituency in Nyamira County.

Speaking at Menyenya High when he released cheques for the beneficiaries, area MP Patrick Osero said that 3774 secondary school students applied for the bursary education fund from NG-CDF but it was with 3334 students who benefited.

“My committee members prioritised the orphans and those who come from the most vulnerable homes,” he said.

The MP asked those who applied but did not get to be patient as they will be considered in the next allocation.

He asked the parents, teachers and guardians of learners to guide them how to fill the bursary application forms by attaching all the required documents to avoid missing the funds.

The MP who was accompanied by area leaders including Members of the County Assembly (MCAs) commended the area new OCS George Wekesa for beefing security against cattle theft at Nyamora-Sotik border that threatened peace in area.

He asked residents to embark on serious farming — especially tea growing and modern dairy to enable them earn a living decently instead of indulging in cattle theft.
