THE Kisumu government has disbursed Sh35 million of the Sh100 million allocated to pay school fees for bright needy students. Finance executive Joseph Omulo Okal said each ward will receive its first tranche of Sh1million. Speaking yesterday in his office, Okal said the county government has a scholarship form that will enable the county to evaluate deserving students. "We focus on bright, vulnerable and orphaned children," he said. The county has seven subcounties and 35 wards. He said in 2013-14 budget each ward will get Sh2.9 million. Okal said the second and third tranche will be released in April and August. "Education is one of the county's pillars and every child deserves better education. We must ensure all the students are educated," he said.
