By David Wanyama in Busia FOUR students who performed best during the 1999 Primary leaving Examinations (PLE) in Busia district, have been awarded bursaries, amounting to sh730,000 by Busia District Administration. Handing over the cheques to the students at Busia Social Hall recently, Mr. Stephen Wanyama Oundo, the LCV chairman, congratulated the students on their hard work and thanked their teachers and parents for struggling to get them to that level. Wanyama disclosed that the district will continue giving bursaries to needy, hard working pupils, to enable them reach higher institutions of learning. He requested sub-counties to do the same, to enable many students from the district go to university. Wanyama commended government for the many programmes that focus on education. He appealed to other students in the district to emulate the excellent PLE candidates. The District Council resolved to annually award bursaries, to four best students, two girls and two boys. The students who received the bursaries were Peninah Nafula from Lumino Secondary School. She was awarded sh150,000. Dennis Mudangi from Mwiri College, received sh140,000 and Martha Nanjala of Dabani Secondary School got sh140,000. Francis Wanjala, Busia SS received a cheque of sh150,000.
