Nairobi to unveil bursary fund for needy students

17 February 2014, 17:01 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi - Nairobi County governor, Evans Kidero has announced that plans are underway to set up the Governor's bursary funding for needy students in the county.

Kidero said that he is consulting with other well-wisher sponsors for monetary support for needy students to access education without much struggle.

He added that his government has set aside KES 2 billion shillings to improve the county's infrastructure in the education sector which includes construction of more classrooms and provision of sufficient learning facilities.

Kidero stated that for every two public secondary schools in the county, there will be a public primary school to curb the cases of pupils missing secondary enrollment slots as a way of  improving learning.

He said that all county social halls will be rehabilitated for various social performances other than conducting them in schools, a practice that  he said poses serious threats to the safety of students and also acts as a leeway for drug abuse.

He further noted that land grabbing, which has been a serious challenge, will be properly dealt with accordingly.

Moreover, Kidero called on public school principals who do not have tittle deeds for their schools' land to liaise with his office's department of lands to ensure the public land is not under grabbing threat.

He also urged parents to take full responsibility of bringing up their children in a morally upright manner holding that leaving the responsibility to teachers alone does not help in raising the nation's future leaders.

Regarding the upcoming ODM elections, Kidero said that it would be better to cancel the exercise then re-evaluate party's divisions across. He said the witnessed disgruntling of the party in Western, Coast and other provinces signifies the collapse of the party hence need to settle the issues before going to the ballot.

Kidero was speaking during the Nairobi principals meeting with other stakeholders in the education sector where the county launched a task-force to look into ways of improving education.
