A Bursary scandal is  brewing in City Hall  after revelation that 350 Million Kenya shillings meant for bursary this year was transferred from treasury to Maryland University Account in Australia instead of City Hall account at Cooperative Bank.

Education Committee chairperson  Millicent Mugadi says the money was released one month ago and it has been in Maryland account making it difficult for MCAs to access the funds.

Budget Committee chairman Robert Mbatia questioned why requisition for money was done to a Maryland accoun, questioning the motive behind it and executive officials involved.

The MCAs  have vowed  to tame the corrupt officials in the matter including the  county treasury officials who have been  trading with county government’s bursary money.
