190 students benefit from Sh2.34m Busia Affirmative Action Fund

Busia women rep Florence Mutua addressing beneficiaries of the Busia Affirmative Action Fund in Busia on Sunday.

One hundred and  ninety students from Busia County  have  benefited  from  Sh2.34 million  bursaries courtesy of  Busia Women Representative  Florence Mutua’s Affirmative Action Fund.

The students drawn from 146 Institutions including the Kenya Medical Training College  Busia Campus and Alupe University,  received a minimum of Sh10,000 and  a maximum of Sh30,000.

Addressing the recipients of the  bursaries outside her Busia Office on Sunday, Mutua said she is sympathetic with men who are not covered by the National Government  Affirmative Action Fund.

” Men Fund has to be sought to alleviate their sufferings. Meanwhile, I beseech them to join women groups. I hope women will take  this proposal into consideration.

I  also  have a bone to bite  with  some wards  which are sleeping on the job.  In Samia only   Agenga Nanguba  and Bwiri  are  active in activating women groups while the rest are sleeping. This laziness must stop,” she said.

The Women rep  dismissed the  gossip making rounds about  her quest for the Deputy Governor’s post in 2022 elections. ” Who told these  gossipers that I am interested in these DG affairs?  When time comes I will announce.”

“This is time to work and not to politic. Women are very loyal. Give them any equipment, they will utilize  them very well. Youth should  emulate such gesture.

They need to persevere  and  work hard to make a profit. The mentality of  expecting instant profits  when they acquire or given  equipment must stop,” she said.
