This emerged after the MCAs may have colluded with the management of various schools to include non-existent students in the list of beneficiaries.
Nyaribo had ordered an investigation into how the money was utilised, and whose report he launched on Monday. A team led IT experts that carried out the audit poked holes into the process of giving the bursaries saying it was suspicious.
"During physical verification, it was discovered that a total of 2,177 students were appearing in list of beneficiaries across all listed Schools were never known in the institutions, and not any records about them could be traced. Not even the students in the presented schools knew them," Mr Nyaribo said.
Also Nyaribo apologized for the delay in the release of the bursaries, blaming it on MCAs whom he said had failed to administer the funds with the required integrity.
