Kakamega County Governor Fernandes Barasa and his deputy, Ayub Savula, are on top of plans to unveil the Sh120 million ward fund bursary program meant to sponsor the education of needy students.
The program is set to be unveiled this week and will see each of the 60 wards receive Sh2 million, which will be awarded to total orphans, partial orphans, and extremely needy cases.

“Our administration is working on availing 120 million bursaries kitty to needy learners across the 60 wards of Kakamega County, and this will be done as soon as possible,” he said.
