“I call upon all the students who applied for education Bursaries form the county to be patient for the next one and a half weeks as what happened at Chase bank was not our wish”, said Mutuli.
The MCA disclosed that the two, Governor Khaemba and Finance CEC Simiyu have approached the controller of Budgets ministry asking for Ksh. 50 million so that the problem is solved.
He appealed to parents to take care of their children during this long vacation and give them some parental Guidance so that they instill discipline in their children.
He also condemned the rampant University unrest in the country giving an example to the University of Nairobi, Laikipia Campus, Masinde Muliro and Kibabii University saying the strikes are as a result of indiscipline students who are not being given correct information and guidelines by their parents.
“Some of these students unrest in universities are as a result of non commitment of parents to offer parental guidance to their children leading to moral decay amongst the youth of this country”, said Mutuli.
