Drama ensued today at the Migori county education offices as members of the Migori county assembly stormed the education offices demanding the release of bursary cheques.
County Public Administrator Dominic Akugo Dismissed the claims of favoritism saying there was delayance in the release of funds from the national government.
Akugo at the same appealed to the MCAs to return the files they had from the education offices saying they are required by the relevant ministry for record purposes.
This was supported by the county communication ‘s Director Nicholas Anyuor who said the county was about to release the cheques as they were just waiting for funds .
The MCAs led by the assembly Majority leader Mallan Ogega had earlier in the day interrupted assembly proceedings citing massive corruption at the executive offices.
The MCAs latter marched to the education offices where they thronged the offices in demand of the cheques.
The education officers who were in offices at that time found themselves in a tough situation trying to explain where the bursaries for the financial year 207/2018 and 2018/2019 were.
Some of the MCAs who suspected mischief in the way the matter was being handled broke open office cabinets containing files and cheques , which were reportedly locked up by an insider within the education office who could not be reached on phone.
The MCAs latter took off with the files to the assembly premises where they swore to table a motion to impeach the County Executive Committee member in charge of education who was not in office during the chaos.
The MCAs claimed that there has been favoritism and discrimination in the issuance of the bursary cheques saying cronies of the governor had received the cheques at the beginning of the year.
