Poor but bright students in Bungoma County are staring at the end of scholarships paying for their education as the Kenya Kwanza government plans to divert the money to mama mboga.

About 10,000 students from Bungoma County who are on Wangamati Scholarship could see the scholarship abolished and funds diverted should Kenya Kwanza's governor Ken Lusaka win the coming general election.

Kenya Kwanza principal Moses Wetangula has revealed they have already instructed Lusaka that once he wins the coming general election, he should abolish the scholarship and bursaries and divert the money to mama mboga.

"If somebody comes here and blackmails you using bursaries and scholarships, it is not going to be there, we have told Governor Ken Lusaka that the money put on scholarships and bursaries should be diverted and be given to women to do business with it," Wetangula said after loose translation from Bukusu, one of the Luhya dialects.

According to Wetangula, the Kenya Kwanza government they are going to form with Deputy President William Ruto is going to offer free secondary education to all learners.

He told Bungoma parents that they will not be paying anything as their children's school fees.

Scholarship for the poor

Wangamati Scholarship has been benefiting students who are bright but are from poor backgrounds. Students who perform well in KCPE are fully financed starting from form 1 to form 4, whether in National School or days school.

Among the top 10 students in the 2021 KCSE exams, one of the students was a beneficiary of the Wangamati Scholarship.

Out of 500 students who benefited, more than 300 students attained university grades.

This year, at least 7000 students were given scholarships.
