Majority of the MCAs supported the motion saying the number of needy cases has been on an upward trend. "The number of orphans in the community has been increasing. There is no better way to support them than awarding them bursaries," said Denis Ombachi, Marani Ward Representative. However Education Committee chairman in the Assembly, Samuel Mirieri opposed the motion saying such funds should have been channelled to Vocational Training Centers for infrastructure development.
