Nairobi city County  public schools pupils who scored 400 marks and above  in this years Kenya certificate of primary Education (KCPE)  will now get free scholarships under the governor’s education kitty.

According to education CEC  Nairobi city county Janet Ouko, the county has already shortlisted the names of those who will benefit including the top three candidates per school.

The county is set to  unveil them at the end of this week.

‘‘When governor Sonko promised this  we really meant it and we were not joking I can confirm that on Friday we will release the  names of the pupils and how entire kitty will be effected.’’ Ouko said.

Meanwhile this year’s bursary will be channeled  electronically to school accounts after thorough scrutiny by the county government in a move  to curb  bursary theft that the governor has adversely  blamed a section of MCAs for perpetrating the same.

‘‘This time round we will conduct this process electronically to avoid challenges of theft, and even errors that have been experienced before in the last regime.’’ She stated.

Today Ouko issued bursary forms to MCAs  and each ward will receive Ksh. 3.5 miilion shilings .
