Isiolo Bursary Fund Board denies misappropriation of KES 35M kitty

The Isiolo County Bursary Fund Board members have moved to allay fears making rounds on social media platforms that the KES 35 Million bursary kitty launched by Governor Abdi Ibrahim Hassan a month ago had been misappropriated.

Speaking yesterday following the inaugural meeting of the board where a new chairperson was elected, the board members sought to assure locals that not a single shilling had been lost.

The team was led by the CECM in charge of education Aileen Kajuju and the chairperson of the Committee on Education in the County Assembly David Nyoro Waithaka.

The members noted that funds only hit the bursary fund account a few days ago, therefore allowing the board to get down to work and ensure that students from needy households are adequately supported to continue with their education.

The board also clarified that the bursary application forms that will be distributed through the respective Ward Administrators beginning today, with the applicants expected to return the forms within the next two weeks.

Kajuju said that this was to allow early processing of the cheques so that beneficiaries are able to use the bursary support from the opening day of the second term.

She however warned applicants against making more than one application as witnessed in the past, where some people applied for funding from more than one ward, stating that those who do so risk being disqualified.

Isiolo County Assembly Committee of Education Chairperson David Waithaka urged those able to pay fees for their kids to desist from applying for bursary funds, in order to enable only those who are genuinely needy to benefit.

The board members elected Zainab Ismail from Kinna ward as the first woman to chair the bursary fund board in Isiolo County.

While making her acceptance speech, Zainab promised to lead the board to discharge their mandate diligently, calling upon fellow board members to uphold integrity in order to ensure that students from needy backgrounds are not disenfranchised of their right to access the bursary fund through issuance of the same to undeserving people.

The board members shared the bursary kitty among the respective wards, with the population being the key consideration.

Bulapesa, Wabera, and Cherab wards got KES 3.2 Million each, Sericho, Kinna, Garbatula and Burat wards received KES 3.0 Million Each, while Chari, Ngaremara and Oldonyiro wards received a share of KES 2.7 Million each.
