Bungoma Governor has approved 200 million shillings for onward payment of pending school fees for needy cases.

Speaking during Kenya Secondary School Heads Association meeting (KESSHA), the Governor said the school heads should expect money in their school accounts starting next week.

Lusaka added though the program was noble, it required a proper audit to make it better and sustainable.

“This is a very ambitious program hence the need to carry a proper audit that is not aimed at witch-hunt but making it more transparent and sustainable.” He said

He assured the school heads that the program was there to stay and laughed off those who thought his regime will do away with it.

“I am a career civil servant and you don’t scrap a good idea just because it was started by your predecessor,” said Lusaka

The Governor at the same time announced that the county government will soon roll out a program that will see it hiring of intern teachers too.

Lusaka during his campaigns he promised to retain the program for the benefit of Bungoma County children.
