Governor Kachapin Urges Ward Administrators to Exercise Integrity in 2024 County Bursary Application Process

H.E Governor Simon Kachapin alongside the Deputy Governor H.E Robert Komolle, County Executive Committee members Rebecca Kide (Education) and Martin Lottee (Public Service Management, Devolved Units and ICT), convened a meeting with all Ward Administrators at the Official Governor's Residence to discuss the progress of the 2024 County Bursary application process.

The Governor emphasized on the critical importance of thorough verification to maintain data integrity and ensure deserving children promptly receive their Bursary.

“It's disheartening to note that some individuals, including certain school head teachers and parents, are submitting fraudulent documentation to the Bursary committee,” said Governor Kachapin

The ward administrators were urged to remain vigilant in the verification processes to weed out deceit and ensure that genuine applicants receive the support they need.

The West Pokot County bursary, aims to enact affirmative action for our children, stemming from the sacrifices parents make, often selling off livestock or parcels of land to educate their children. Our goal is clear: to alleviate poverty and minimize school dropouts through targeted assistance.

Also, present were chief officer of education and county director of bursary.
