Kisii County Sets aside Sh 135 Million for bursaries.


Kisii County Government will partner with the National Government in Infrastructural development in all learning institutions in the County.

Speaking on Friday during the officiating of the Fourth graduation ceremony for 292 graduates at the Kenyenya Teachers Training college in Kisii County, Kisii County Governor James  Ongwae said education was not a devolved function and the county government will chip in where necessary to ensure learners in Primary, Secondary and Youth Polytechnics have a conducive learning environment.

“Having served as the Chief Executive Officer of the Teachers Service Commission in the past I have education matters close to my heart, we would ensure our children get quality education,” said Ongwae.

According to him, the County Government has set aside Sh 135 Million as bursaries for bright and needy students in this financial year and that no needy student who genuinely needs financial assistance should fail to get it.

He also promised to employ all the 52 ECDE graduates from the institution and that the county government had so far employed over 1,000 ECDE teachers this followed an appeal by the College Principal Jane Tallam.

Kisii Woman Representative Janet Ong’era who accompanied him asked students from Gusii region to work hard in their studies to empower themselves academically.

“Those who have worked hard in their studies have been able to get jobs and been able to buy land and settle out of Kisii, education is the only investiment that your parents can bequeath to you,” said Ms. Ong’era.

Bomachoge Borabu MP Zadock Ogutu called on the 700 students at the Institution to work hard and be ready to serve in any part of the country once they graduate in order to gain experience.

“ Kenya is one country, you can only gain experience and knowledge by being willing to work in various parts of the country since you are all young and full of energy,” said Ogutu.
