On December 11th 2018, H.E Muthomi Njuki instated the Tharaka Nithi Bursary Board and Ward Committee members at Kathwana and tasked them with the duty of equitably allocating bursaries to the bright needy.
This was made possible after the gazetting of the County Bursary Bill.
The Kshs. 45 million bursary fund will be disbursed at ward level, with each elective unit getting Kshs 3 million.
The committees work in consultation with their constituency Development Fund counterparts to avoid cases of double allocation.
The County Government of Tharaka Nithi is here to serve the people of Tharaka Nithi with fairness and impartiality, and Board and committee members found culpable of malpractices during bursary allocation will be prosecuted.
