Suna West residents fault CDF disbursement criteria used by the Constituency Development Fund committee in issuing the bursary funds to the applicants.
The residents claim that the fund is only benefiting a particular group of persons who they claimed to be political stalwarts of the area Member of Parliament Hon. Joseph Ndiege.
A resident who talked on condition of anonymity for fear of victimization said that the bursary forms are clandestinely given out by the CDF committee to their political loyalist.
Hon. Ndiege however refuted the claims saying that the bursary fund is being given fairly to the needy applicants from every ward in the constituency.
The legislator claimed that people may not understand their current criteria used to award the bursary where the vetting of applicants is done before the forms are given out.
Ndiege said that the needy students are chosen from the ward level and the names are forwarded to the CDF committee for vetting and only the successful students are given the forms to fill.
He said they are trying to limit the wastage of forms and also money wastage by parents in the process of filling the forms yet some of them may not get the funds.
Meanwhile CDF manager for Suna West Mr. Bernard Kunya downplayed Hon. Ndiege remarks saying that Ndiege is a politician and not even a member of the CDF committee and so he may not have tangible information on how the CDF disbursement is done.
He said that he is directly involved in the operation in the CDF office saying that no vetting has been done as Ndiege claim.
He said the CDF committee had already identify some needy student who will always be benefiting from the funds until they complete their education saying that some of them may drop their education on the way in case they withdraw they support.
He however said that they will be giving room to other needy students beside the previous beneficiaries every time they will be issuing the fund.
This comes barely after a few months when some Migori East resident raised some concerns over the biasness in Uwezo Fund distribution
