We are bold in presenting our news as we move to all Maa counties across the country.

Kajiado’s COVID-19 Partners’ Coordination Committee on Friday distributed more food items to more than 300 families spread across East and Central sub-counties.

Governor Joseph Lenku’s-appointed committee which is chaired by lawyer Daniel Kanchori has been targeting less-fortunate members of the society.

Lenku is said to have sworn that he will not allow the pandemic to decimate livelihoods and has also appealed to well-wishers to support him in donating food items that they can share to the needy.

Members of Bunge La Mwananchi were also supplied with sanitisers.

During the Friday distribution, Kajiado’s Bunge La Mwanainchi Chapter members numbering 120 received food items from the committee.

While appreciating the support of the governor Lenku’s administration, the chapters’ members appealed to be considered in the Kazi Mtaani initiative.

The government has stepped up plans to ensure the timely kick-off of the National Hygiene Program (NHP) dubbed Kazi Mtaani, which started two weeks ago.

An inter-ministerial team has already developed grassroots work plans that will see more than 270,000 Kenyans absorbed in the national programme with a Kshs10 billion budget outlay as recently announced by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Kanchori told them their issue will be discussed at another forum so as to ensure that the youth in the county are also considered whenever such opportunities occur.

After delivering the food items to the chapter’s members in Kitengela town, the members of the committee moved to Purko in Central Sub-County and distributed the same food to 100 families.

“This is an on-going process and our target is mainly the so poor people, who have been negatively affected by this COVID-19 pandemic,” said Kanchori.

While in Kajiado Central Constituency, the team also visited Matapato and distributed the same food items to 100 more families.

The Chairman appealed to other good Samaritans to join forces with the county government in assisting the many families that are going without food.

“What we are saying is that, if you have a neighbour who is going hungry, support him/her. Others who feel endowed with whatever they can share can also come forward and support our governor’s initiative” said Kanchori.
