Bursary Funds Hijacked By Cartels As Bright, Needy Students Suffer
A section of Lower Savannah ward residents in Embakasi East Constituency are up in arms for missing bursaries being distributed by the area MCA.
Maimuna Bakari a resident of Savannah says she started queueing from 4.30 am for the bursary only for her to miss.
Bakari says that most of them left their small businesses in a bid to secure the bursaries only for them to be told the bursaries are not enough.
Kim Aget another resident claims that the process was hijacked by cartels who brought in their people costing the genuine applicants opportunities.
The claims come just a few days after stories of bright and needy students flooded media reports as form one students reported to school.
The latest case being the case of a boy who reported to Kanga High School with only a metal box and two bars of soap.
Levis Otieno Rabar however got help from well-wishers who paid for his school fees for all the four years and also did his shopping.
Another student reportedly committed suicide while his counterpart in Nyalenda, Kisumu County wrote a suicide note to her parents after they failed to raise enough money to take her to Asumbi Girls School in Homabay County.
