Govt committed to fighting poverty

20 September 2013, 13:45 Nicholas Bett

Eldoret - President Uhuru Kenyatta has asked the youths to come up with groups in order for them to borrow loans from the KES 6 billion kitty that was meant for election rerun.

Speaking in Eldoret after presiding over a graduation ceremony in Moi University, Uhuru said that the purpose of the kitty was to create employment for young people in order to fight poverty in the country.

He said for the short time the Jubilee government has been in power, it has achieved a lot including the provision of free maternity in all public hospitals, issuing of title deeds at the Coast and resettling of IDPs by closing all camps.

On the issues of VAT, the President said that basic commodities such as flour and bread are exempted from VAT and cautioned traders who have overpriced such products that the full force of the law will soon catch up with them.

He also sent a strong message to his competitors where he asked them to let his government serve Kenyans and urged them to wait for the next general elections instead of playing politics everyday.

He asked the residents of Eldoret to pray for him and his Deputy during the ongoing trials at The Hague.
