Nyakach constituency MP Aduma Owuor has issued bursaries worth Ksh26.3 million to over 4,000 students from the area for the current academic year.

The constituency’s Office Manager Sylvance Ocholla said that the beneficiaries are students in colleges, universities and Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges in the area.

He said that the exercise had been long overdue because as they had expected the funds to be released on time but had been delayed.

“We want to thank parents, students and the various stakeholders for being patient with us during this period and now we are welcoming all students who made their applications to come and confirm with the office,” the manager said.

Ocholla added that they were still waiting for Ksh23 million to be disbursed by the government soon.

He stated that they had already released Ksh4 million to cater for full scholarships of the students.

According to Elizabeth Abonyo, Obange Vocational Training Centre (VTC) Manager, the disbursement of the funds is a huge relief to most of the parents whose children are within different learning institutions.

She said that most of the learners could not even afford registration fees hence the bursaries will be a plus to them.

“Most of our funding comes from the county government which sometimes delays and when the bursary came early, we saw it as a blessing because this is going to greatly help them,” noted Abonyo.
