Bunge la mwananchi,a country wide lobby group ,has  now threatened to storm Nairobi county assembly over alleged misuse of bursary funds for needy students by a section of MCAs .

Led by Bunge la Mwananchi  chairman Henry Shitanda they say  some honorable members have turned the bursary fund into cash-cow where they fraudulently milk county  funds meant for bursaries.

Those implicated in the scam include Makongeni MCA Peter Jateso Imwatok who is said to be using Kobudho educational centre  and Kitusuru MCA Alvin Palala of Kitusuru ward who is said to be using NR Savo limited.

‘‘We have a watertight evidence that Kobudho educational center has received close to 17 million shillings bursary funds in Makangeni alone and we are ready to meet them in court,’’ Shitanda said

Meanwhile Imwatok has  defended himself from the claims saying the allegations are being propagated by governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko to taint his image.

According to him he has never touched a single shilling of the public and if anyone  has evidence then he is ready to defend himself in court.

‘‘Am not being investigated by EACC or DCI and Sonko should tell Nairobians  how Nairobi county’s Sh297.5 million bursary funds were “mistakenly” sent to a bank account in Maryland, Australia,’’ Imwatok said.

Imwatok is known to be a fierce critic of governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko.
