Western Kenya residents applaud Government for its development record

Western Kenya residents applaud Government for its development record
Shianda, Mumias East March 25, 2017
Residents of Navakholo, Matungu and Mumias East constituencies in Western Kenya have expressed their sincere gratitude to the government under the leadership of President Uhuru Kenyatta for fulfiling its development pledges to them.
The jubilant residents had turned out in large numbers to witness the launching of the National Youth Service (NYS) Youth Empowerment Program presided over by the Cabinet Secretary for Public Service, Youth and Gender Affairs, Mrs. Sicily Kariuki in Navakholo, Matungu and Mumias East constituencies.
The leaders who accompanied the CS during her itinerary in the region included MPs Emmanuel Wangwe, (Navakholo), David Were, (Matungu) and Benjamin Washiali (Mumias East) who pledged their loyalty to the government which they noted had done a lot in terms of development to the residents in the last four years.
The MPs cited infrastructural development such as road network, construction of Technical Training Institutes, Hospitals, and the last mile electricity connectivity as some of the projects they have witnessed.
In her remarks during the launches, CS Kariuki pointed out that the government is harnessing out the potential of the cohorts in its efforts to push for a youth driven economy.
Addressing NYS cohorts, Mrs. Kariuki asserted that they had desirable qualities that could only be used wisely by engaging in production, farming, construction and the entrepreneurial sector among others in the country.
"You have the energy, creativity and passion and you know what you want for your future. You are who we need to drive the economy of our country to the nextlevel as the future belongs to you,” she advised.

Giving life examples of the success stories to the cohorts and resident, the Cabinet Secretary termed the program as having magic touch to its beneficiaries transforming their livelihoods.
Revisiting the challenges that the program had to endure, Mrs. Kariuki appointed the cohorts to be her goodwill ambassadors and defenders of its good work from the detractors who would not like to see them progressing.
“As my goodwill ambassadors I task you with the responsibility to jealously guard this program which is meant to enable you achieve socio-economic empowerment," the CS said in conclusion.
