Nakuru MCA on spot over ‘nepotism’ claims in bursary allocation

A Njoro community based organization has written to the Ethics and anti-corruption commission demanding urgent investigation in the office of Njoro MCA and Ward bursary committee.

In a letter dated 1st October 2018 addressed to the Director EACC South Rift regional office in Nakuru and carbon copied to the County Bursary Committee chair, Beeston Community Based Organization has raised concerns over the manner in which county bursary in particular Njoro ward was disbursed between July and September 2018.

According to the Njoro Based CBO, the exercise was influenced by nepotism and favoritism and other improper motive of corruption.

Addressing media in Nakuru on Thursday led by John Njoroge, the CBO now wants Njoro Ward Bursary Committee to step aside in order to allow smooth investigations into the matter.

“We want the committee in Njoro Ward on matters of bursary disbanded to allow investigation over concerns raised” said Njoroge.

Our attempts to reach the office of the MCA for a comment on the same were futile as our calls went unanswered.
