PSG prepares a Bill aimed at reducing the cost of living

The Public Service Governance (PSG) has established a Taskforce that aims at looking deeply into issues affecting Kenyan households and offer the requisite legal framework for their new legislation ‘Affordable Kitchen for All Bill’.

The Taskforce is already at work, and is in the process of organizing for public participation engagements with Kenyans across the eight regions on the proposed Bill.

Speaking during the Celebrations of the International Women’s Day at the Lutheran Plaza Nairobi, PSG President, Amb. Esther Waringa, said the Taskforce will collect proposals on the Bill from the citizens and discuss how to go about their demands as per their proposals.

“The high cost of these basic kitchen commodities; Unga, Cooking oil, Sugar, Rice and Cooking gas has made a kitchen which is a woman’s territory to remain a no go zone,” said Waringa.

She stated that the legislation also focuses on growing Kenya’s economy, to a point that the cost of living is reduced completely, making it easy for anyone to survive in the country.

According to PSG President, leadership and governance, food security, water, education, health, Special Programs and Humanitarian Assistance are the seven Key monumental areas of intervention, which will highly transform the lives of all citizens.
