The Home Right displays ALL categories even when i select just one. EduClean Theme

In Appearance | Theme Options | Blog Post Settings,
It says: "Choose your Home Right mini featured category"...
I choose a specified category but yet it continues to display ALL blog posts on the Home Right side.

does anyone know how to set this straight?
because otherwise its redundant since I use the HOME LEFT to display form a specified category too. I would eventaully have the same post up front.
