Kajiado County to stop sponsorship for students involved in indiscipline cases

  • Governor Ole Lenku said the government cannot tolerate any form of indiscipline, adding that the funds allocated from the national government will not be sufficient.
  • He was speaking on Wednesday in Ongata Rongai at a Ksh.50 million bursary launch set to boost education arrears for over 10,000 students.

Kajiado County Governor Joseph Ole Lenku has warned that any student found culpable in school arson cases will be withdrawn from government sponsorship programs.

The governor said the government cannot tolerate any form of indiscipline, adding that the funds allocated from the national government will not be sufficient thus urging learners to put more effort on their performance.    

"Those students who are sponsored by the county government in this program will not get any help if they engage in cases of burning schools. We know it is due to lack of discipline," said Ole Lenku.

He was speaking on Wednesday in Ongata Rongai at a Ksh.50 million bursary launch set to boost education arrears for over 10,000 students.

"There are no enough funds, so those under the program will be needed to be top performers in their respective schools," he added.

Moreover, he urged parents to be at the forefront in ensuring that their children are of good conduct at home and also in schools.
