*Boost for the needy as bursaries worth Sh27 million released, checkout the allocation per county*
Kisumu West Member of Parliament Olago Aluoch has presented cheques worth Sh27,078,000 to various schools in the area. The amount is expected to also cover for the needy students from the constituency
Aluoch said that the beneficiaries are students who are in various national schools across the country.
“The constituency office received applications from 12,500 students out of which 98% cases were considered,” the legislator explained.
Olago said he was in talks with the National Government Constituency Development Fund (NG-CDF) board to see how the remaining students can be assisted.
While giving out the cheques at Ojola NG-CDF complex in Kisumu West Aluoch urged the youth to take advantage of the Coxswain training scholarships offered by his office in order to play an active role in blue economy activities.
He also urged his voters to take advantage of the revamped Kisumu port.
“As you are aware the national government has revamped the Kisumu Port and it will soon be operationalized. This training is very important to enable our youth and fishermen to take up various opportunities that are coming up in the lake. The blue economy opportunities will be of no significance to us if we don’t change the way we think,” he said.
