During the handing over ceremony of office to newly elected leaders at Kajiado KCB grounds, new Kajiado County Youth Alliance chairman Robert Lempaso said he will steer the alliance to work closely with the current leadership of the county.

After receiving instruments of power from Malano, Lemoaso said the youth alliance will work closely with governor Lenku to ensure that pledges he made regarding upgrading the lives of the county youth are realised.

“We will also push for the 30per cent youth tenders Lenku pledged during his last campaigns prior to the last general election. As usual we will resist bad governance in our county and we will only forge to work with trusted leaders,” said the new incoming chairman.

KCYA propelled former governor David Nkedianye to power in the 2013 general election, but his second attempt power was brought down by the youth for allegedly failing to support their agenda in the sharing of tenders with the youth.

The guest of honour during the handing over ceremony was county senator Philip Mpaayei assisted by Kajiado West MP George Sunkuyia and couple of MCAs led by Daniel Naikuni (Purko) and Moses Saoyo (Keek-Onyokie).

Sunkuyia said Kajiado elected leaders recognise youth leadership in the county and he will do everything in his power to change the lives of the youth.

“President Uhuru Kenyatta is aware of this handing over ceremony and when I talked to him he sent his greetings to the new members of KCYA . We are together, as leaders of the county, together with the President in supporting you,” said Sunkuya.
