Lirambi MP: We Are Ending Bursaries Because Gen Z Keeps Insulting Us

Lurambi MP Titus Khamala claims that Members of Parliament have agreed to stop disbursing bursaries to students over insults from Gen Z

Lurambi MP Titus Khamala claims that Members of Parliament have agreed to stop disbursing bursaries to students over insults from Gen Z.

Speaking over the weekend, the ODM-elected MP remarked that the legislators received a lot of backlash on how they used the National Government Constituency Development Fund (NG-CDF).

In particular, he blamed Gen Z claiming the younger generation went as far as terming them as MPigs in reference to their perceived gluttonous nature.

“As MPs, we have spoken in one voice about CDF which is bringing us problems, we are being insulted and called MPigs,” he stated.

“To end it and to make Gen Z happy, the bursary that goes to Gen Z, we have said we end it.”

The MP claimed that only Gen Z benefitted from the bursaries and it was sad to see them biting the hand that fed them.

He explained that going forward, students will be seeking the Minister of Education Ezekiel Machogu to help them clear school fees.

Alternatively, they could visit their respective county offices or apply for a loan through the Higher Education Loans Board (HELB).

“Prepare yourselves with life without CDF,” he told the young people seeking accountability on how public funds are used.

The Lurambi MP made the remarks following reports that the NG-CDF Act was being amended to remove MPs from the implementation structures of the Fund.

Currently, MPs have a primary voice on how the funds are used as they are patrons of the kitty.

A section of MPs have accused the Senate of being used by the Executive to do away with the fund that was introduced in 2002.
