Subject: persistent delays in the disbursement of bursaries

           AWARE that issuance of bursaries to needy students across the County remains one of the County’s most outstanding contribution to the welfare of the needy; Noting that the timely disbursement of the funds has helped keep such needy students in schools and facilitate their smooth learning; recognizing that the Assembly has constantly allocated funds for bursaries each financial year to assist needy students with higher education; deeply concerned that the money for the noble cause has been constantly disbursed, following outcry and consistent follow up by Members of this August House despite having made provisions in the budget including the said monies remaining undisbursed to date even after commitments were made by the relevant County department; Regretting that the delay had deeply affected the beneficiaries of these bursaries who had hoped to benefit from said monies but remain out of school for lack of fees. This Assembly adjourns pursuant to Standing Order 34 in order to discuss persistent delays in the disbursement of bursaries despite repeated commitment by the County Executive as a definite matter of urgent importance.
