There was drama today at the Nairobi city county assembly this is after MCAs walked out of the National Assembly chambers protesting the delay of bursaries.

The group which was led by Kayole Central MCA Jeremiah Themendu shouted bursaries slogans from the house before they addressed the media.

In their assembly submissions  the MCAs accused the executive of not telling them the truth about the bursaries adding that parents are on their necks demanding  bursaries.

‘‘Order Number 1 Bursaries, Order Number 2 Bursaries,” shouted Themendu.

“We are not going to be told left right that we have stolen bursaries yet we know nothing …we shall continue paralyzing the house business  everyday until we  get the bursaries.’’ Themendu told the media.

The assembly also resolved to paralyse all business of county governments should they fail to give a comprehensive report on the matter by tomorrow afternoon.

‘‘We are giving the chair of the budget committee until tomorrow to gives us the report from executive failure to which we shall not entertain this… the house cannot be held at ransom because of the bursaries.. we shall paralyse all the operations including  passage of budget.’’ Chege said.

Sonko’s wing maintains that the controller of budget Agnes Odhiambo is responsible for the delay.

Controller of budget wants Niarobi City country assembly to explain  how they spent the bursary funds of 2017/2018 before she can release funds for 2018/2019.

No single student or pupil has received a cent from the county government bursary kitty since January as supremacy battle between the controller of budget and county  government continues.
