The commissioner of Central Equatoria’s Lainya County, Emmanuel Khemis Richard, has offered twenty students hailing from his county fully-funded scholarships to study at the newly established Juba-based Kuda University.

“Lainya County Local Government will submit a list of twenty students for enrollment as scholarships from the office of the Hon. Commissioner,” said Khemis in a WhatsApp message Friday.

The school proprietor, Robert Lomoro, thanked the commissioner for his contribution. “We’ll always remember the contributions you have made to the community of Lainya and particularly Kuda University,” Robert said.

However, it remains unclear how the scholarships will be awarded and whether the awardees would be free to choose their courses of study or if there are specific courses the county is interested in.
