Subject: Adjournment to discuss issuance of bursaries in the County

THAT, aware that Article 43 (1) (f) of the Constitution 2010 provides that every person has the right to education; further aware that the County Government has been funding students from informal settlements through bursaries issued through the Members of the County Assembly each year since 2013; concerned that the County Executive has delayed the issuance of bursaries for this year, which has locked most students out of school due to lack of school fees; acknowledging that most students from the informal settlements in the County dependents on the bursaries issued by the County Government as school fees, this Assembly adjourns pursuant to Standing Order 34 to discuss the delay by the County Executive to issue bursaries to students who depend on them as a matter of definite urgent County importance.
