Kenya: MP Promises Fairness in Giving CDF, Bursaries

An MP has said he will not bend the law in the disbursement of CDF and bursary funds. Kitutu Masaba MP Timothy Bosire said money from the two kitties will be disbursed to projects and needy students in line with the law.

"I urge those managing the two kitties to be transparent and accountable," he said. Bosire was speaking on Friday during a meeting at the constituency CDF office at Tombe.

He said he is committed to serving his constituents. Bosire accused the former committee of not efficiently using the CDF funds to benefit residents.

During the meeting, North Kitutu location chief Jane Matara raised concern that there is a cartel forging signatures to benefit from the bursary allocation. She said some school principals and bursars were being involved in the cartel. Bosire said no cartel will thrive under his leadership.
