Top Student’s Bursary Woes Solved by Governor Anyang’ Nyong’o Intervention


When the story of a top KCPE student being denied a bursary reached Kisumu Governor Anyang’ Nyong’o, he took quick action. In a statement on Monday, February 6, he stated that he became aware of the story after it went viral on electronic media.

đŸ“‹Denied Bursary

The name of Juma Adhiambo Jane, who scored 393 marks in the 2022 KCPE exam, was removed from a list of successful bursary recipients in East Kano Wawidhi Ward in Nyando Sub-County.

đŸ’¼Resolution Meeting

The governor announced that the county executive committee member for Education, Technical Training, Innovation, and Technical Services, John Awiti, convened a meeting to resolve the matter after reports surfaced that Jane’s name was replaced with another applicant.

đŸ”¨Dissolution and Reinstatement

After extensive deliberation, Awiti and his counterpart Judith Oluoch gave out directives in favor of the needy student. The East Kano Wawidhi ward bursary committee was dissolved with immediate effect for failing to follow bursary issuance guidelines, and Jane’s name was reinstated into the list of beneficiaries. Her bursary letter of commitment was to be prepared urgently to enable her to report to Bunyore Girls High School.

đŸ’°Bursary Distribution

The governor noted that ward administrators across the county remain nonpartisan in the processing and distribution of bursaries and scholarships. Bursary issuance has been ongoing in different counties and constituencies as students join secondary school.
