Nakuru Town West Member of Parliament Samuel Arama has reiterated his commitment to education for all.
Speaking at the Constituency NG-CDF office during issuance of bursary cheques to students joining Form one, Arama said his commitment is in line with National Government’s agenda on 100 percent transition from Primary to Secondary.
The MP assured parents that all Form ones will have their first term fee cleared in full by NG-CDF bursary kitty.
He revealed that in the last financial year, he had set aside Ksh 12 million towards the same.
While noting that education is key in transformation of society, Arama called on parents and administrators to work closely with his office in ensuring all children are in school.
“I had set aside Ksh 12 million so that we can help our children coming from humble background and ensure full fee for term one is paid,” said Arama.
The beneficiaries are learners in public schools and whose parents are voters in Nakuru West.
The vocal lawmaker once again assuring that under his patronage, the bursaries are issued in a transparent manner adding that tribalism has no room in matters education.
“As long as you are a voter here and you applied for the bursary you must get for we are doing this in a very transparent way,” he said.
Arama, at the same time told off those who had transferred their votes to other constituencies that they cannot benefit on the same.
He pointed out that majority of the rejected forms belong to such lot.
“There are some people who were bought at sh 300 during elections to transfer their votes and they still want to benefit, that one cannot happen and that is why we have their forms rejected,” he said.
The lawmaker also used the opportunity to slam his opponents whom he said have no any positive thoughts about the welfare of the people.
He cited a scenario where some individuals have been using social media platforms to write baseless messages aimed to derail his development agenda.
“Let them wait for 2027 and throw their weight in whatever they want, but for now my focus is on service delivery for my people,” he stated.
Arama has vowed to continue working closely with Governor Susan Kihika and the Kenya Kwanza government under the leadership of President William Ruto for the sake of development for his constituents.
