Kazi mtaani recruits urged to observe cleanliness

The more than 3,000 youth who have been listed to participate in the National Hygiene Programme dubbed kazi mtaani have been urged to strictly observe the laid out Ministry of Health protocols.

Speaking to the 214 supervisors recruited for the exercise on Saturday, Busia County Commissioner Joseph Kanyiri said that no Covid patient reported in the area should be transferred to another County for treatment.

“As we speak now, we have nine people who have been identified as Covid-19 positive but we do not have a place to take them,” he said adding that the two isolation centres at Alupe and ATC were overstretched.

Kanyiri told the recruits that the treatment cost is very high and they should avoid exposure at all costs.

“If it reaches a point where you need to be placed on a machine and you do not have an insurance cover, you will pay up to Sh300, 000 and beyond,” he said.

He advised the supervisors to liaise with the technical officers to ensure that quality and measurable job is done before submitting reports to the County Implementation Committee for further action.

“The work might need tools like spades, brooms, rakes among others,’ he said adding that all recruits would be required to procure their own.

Busia Deputy County Secretary Evelyn Ikwii urged the cohort to ensure that their areas of supervision were well done.

Ikwii stated that the County government would be keen to identify talents among the recruits during the six months exercise.

“The County government is hawk eyed to identify talents among you and so it is my advice that you utilize your skills so that we are able to spot you,” she said adding that those who were focused would have a bright future.

Busia is among the 59 Municipalities earmarked for the Social Protection Programme with a view to cushion the youth from the negative economic effects of the COVID 19 pandemic.
