“A governor cannot fail to give to give bursary because it is mentioned in the law. Besides that, the country has a law as far as how much the bursary fund is supposed to be dispensed and the methodology, he said.

“Those are teething problems within a new county government because we have a new administration,” he added.

According to the governor the MCAs are first time ward representatives who are yet to understand the ups and downs of how politics works.

The MCAs on Monday wanted to know if the governor would listen to him or they had to take drastic measures to get his attention.

In 2022, the governor said that his life was in danger and that some people were after his head when he addressed members of Gatundu south church telling them to pray for him.
