Public Service, Youth and Gender Affairs Cabinet Secretary, Mrs. Sicily Kariuki has dismissed allegations being spread by critics of the National Youth Service (NYS) Youth Empowerment Program terming them as false and malicious.
The CS told the critics to stop introducing politics in the programme and instead support it as the intention is to benefit unemployed youth across the country.
Advising the critics to desist from their unwarranted criticism, the CS said, “This programe is one of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s brainchild and the government’s flagship project aimed at achieving vison 2030”.
“Let me put it clear to them that this is not just any other normal project, but one which has the face of the country with a long lasting impact to the beneficiaries,” asserted CS Kariuki.
Revealing the benefits of the program to the jubilant residents of Taveta when she officially launched the program at the Evangelical Lutheran Church grounds, CS Kariuki informed the 900 cohorts that they will earn over Ksh56 million in the six months operational period.
The Cabinet Secretary added that Ksh15 million will be saved through their SACCOs thus enabling them to enter the world of business after completion citing agri-business, poultry and fish farming as potential fields to venture into.
Meanwhile, Mrs. Kariuki encouraged the ecstatic cohorts and women to take advantage of the Affirmative Action Funds to realize their dreams.
Appealing to the youth cohorts to be role models to the community, Mrs. Kariuki urged them to adhere to the slogan, “True to self, True to Country” to maintain discipline.
The jubilant crowd who followed keenly her address was excited to hear that by the end of the program, the cohorts will be involved into various services including de-silting water pans, sinking boreholes and vector control programmes
“Do not allow politics to disrupt it and also refuse to be used by politicians to cause chaos. I urge you to always use the laid down procedures to solve amicably any differences that may occur during the course of service,” CS Kariuki advised.
The beneficiaries of the Affirmative Action Fund from the sub-county stunned those in attendance by their success stories from their investments.
During the function, CS Kariuki disbursed over Ksh.18 million to various youth and women groups from the sub-county. The cheques were from Youth Enterprise Development Fund, Women Enterprise Fund and Uwezo Fund.
Later, she also distributed relief food to mitigate effects of famine and directed the administration to ensure the needy families benefited from the aid which included 500 bags of maize, 300 bags of rice, 110 bags of beans and 50 cartons of cooking fat.
During the events, CS Kariuki was accompanied by Parliament deputy majority leader, Mrs. Naomi Shaban who is also the area MP, Gender PS Zeinab Hussein, Social Protection PS Susan Mochache, NYS Deputy Director General Captain Sam Muchuki and CEOs of Affirmative Funds among other government and local leaders.
