Kakamega County Governor H.E Hon. Wycliffe Ambetsa Oparanya has challenged residents to take advantage of government education sponsorship programs and ensure that qualified learners benefit accordingly. The Governor announced that his government has disbursed Sh120 Million equally, from the 2016/17 financial year’s budget, in all the 60 wards to support bright but needy students in acquiring secondary education. The Governor encouraged parents and guardians to help their children access this funding adding that the government will in 2017 sponsor twelve best students from across the twelve sub counties to further their studies outside the country in institutions of their choice. In 2016, the sponsorship program saw ten students leave for China as two chose University of Nairobi and Maseno University. The Governor went on to encourage qualified students from the county to regularly check in with their Sub-County and Ward Administrators as well as visit the county website for information on the County Higher Education Loan to boost their university and college school fees needs. Governor Oparanya was speaking in Matungu and Khwisero Sub-Counties during a funeral service. His Excellency Governor Oparanya was accompanied by his deputy, H.E Hon. Prof. Philip Kutima, County Executive Members, Members of the County Public Service Board, Hon. MCAs among other officials from both national and county governments.
