Thika investors, leaders and residents have raised over Sh9million in support of the Thika Education Trist Fund during a dinner arranged by Thika MP Alice Ng’ang’a in Coconut Grill hotel on Saturday evening.

MP Ng'ang'a said that the funds will be added to the remaining Sh4 million during the last disbursement where University, College and Secondary school students are aimed to benefit.

Ng'ang'a said the kitty has been managed by respected individuals to ensure accountability and transparency. She said she has only been patronizing the trust fund.

The legislator called upon the committee to vet more applicants in a period of two weeks to prepare for the February disbursement next year where up to now, more than 1,500 applicants have been vetted and approved while other have been disqualified for various reasons.

The CDF Chairman, Mr. Ephraim Njihia, speaking from the same event said that the parents have not been applying in time and thus giving the vetting committees a hard time in reviewing how to help those that delay and added that his office has put cautious measures to ensure that those that come late will be pushed to the next disbursement.

He called on the residents who have not applied for the trust fund to hurry and pick up the forms from his office as they have a week before he closes down the application and commences the vetting process.

Ng’ang’a has however lauded the Asian community in Thika for the full support towards the kitty with the  Bidco CEO Vimal Shah pledging to raise his contribution once his friends supported him to ensure he contributes a bigger amount than he had.
