Ignore critics, CS Waiguru told

26 June 2015, 11:24

Nairobi - Kipipiri MP, Samuel Gichigi has said that the National Assembly will stand with the Devolution Cabinet Secretary in the ongoing debate on alleged corruption in her ministry.

Speaking at Miharati town where 900 youths from Kipipiri were recruited into the Youth Empowerment Programme being conducted by the National Youth Service, he asked the cabinet secretary to ignore those opposed to her, terming them as idle talkers.

“Let Waiguru know that Kenyans fully support her and she should not get scared of her critics. These were just mere allegations and we dare anyone with evidence of corruption to take it to the relevant authorities. Our youths are also impressed by her leadership,” he noted.

Gichigi welcomed the move by the Jubilee Government to have jobless youths being engaged in the informal sector adding that the move would play a big role in development as well as stopping them from engaging in criminal activities and alcoholism.

“We fully support the programme as it will give hope to our youths most of whom had no jobs and were almost losing hope in life. This is something that will make the youths uplift their livelihoods,” he said.

The MP dismissed Waiguru's critics terming them as ill minded.

“It is a shame that some of our leaders are doing everything possible to stop this exercise and yet our youths are earning a living from it. They should be dismissed since they are idle talkers,” he noted.

Kipipiri constituency is amongst the only two that have benefited from the programme in Nyandarua County after Ol Kalou.

The youths will serve in the unskilled labour sector within the County.
