Youths dash for kazi mtaani

Nyandarua County administrators have hailed the President’s recent Economic Stimulus package, as youths make a dash for the Kazi Mtaani programme.
Nyandarua North Deputy County Commissioner Walter Ngaira, has said that committees at the Ward levels have already started receiving applications for the National Hygiene Programme dubbed Kazi Mtaani Initiative ahead of the rollout.
“We are receiving applications through the Nyumba Kumi clusters and we will create a data bank grouping the youths into skilled and unskilled labour categories,” said Ngaira.
His Nyandarua West counterpart Hezron Nyamberi noted that through the Hygiene Committees spread across the 26 sub locations the area has continued to receive applications so that “our youths also tap into the Sh10 billion envisaged by the President for the programme.”
The DCC noted that the government’s stipends to the elderly as well as vulnerable groups were ongoing with about 2, 300 elderly persons, already benefitted from Shs.18.4 million.
“Well-wishers have come in to help the vulnerable households that cannot fend for themselves following the COVID-19 outbreak. We have facemasks, sanitizers and food stuffs that have already benefitted 300 households and persons living with disabilities,” noted Nyamberi.
Mirangine Sub county DCC Omar Ali warned person sneaking into the county from counties under containment that they will be sent under mandatory quarantine and charged in a court.
He noted that three people who had sneaked into the sub county from Kilifi County had been sent for a mandatory 14 day quarantine and will be arraigned in court for defying the government’s protocol on cessation of movement.
“We have also noted with concern that some few individuals have turned to drinking in private homes in the name of parties. We want to warn those who think they can play hide and seek games with law enforcers that their days are numbers,” warned Ali noting that about 29 people from the Sub County were in mandatory quarantine for violating set Covid directives.
