Azida said the county government has also advertised 400 jobs for ECDE teachers with the applications set to close on August 7th, adding that their target is to employ at least three teachers per school in the near future.

Higher Education Loans Board students are set to receive more funding. Azida said a total of KES 78m including KES 28m which had remained in the first phase will be given to on-going and new college and tertiary students.

Chief Officer Joel Barua said out of KES107 million Education bursary, the county government had already disbursed KES 50m which was issued through wards, adding that KES 50m being mainstream bursary will be disbursed as soon as the Treasury releases funds for the current financial year.
