The Bungoma county government has released Sh400 million for bursaries to students from the region.

Governor Wycliffe Wangamati said the funds would benefit 40,000 students in secondary schools and other tertiary institutions.

Mr Wangamati said the devolved government was fully committed to education and promised more funds next year.

“We have compiled a list of about 800 students per ward in the 45 wards in the area and they will receive an increased allocation to enable them continue with their studies,” he said.
