Kaparo challenges men in Laikipia
20 August 2012, 10:33
Former National Assembly Speaker Francis Ole Kaparo has hurled a challenge to all heads of families in Laikipia North, saying that they should rise up from their comfort zones and emulate various women projects which are currently spurring developments in the region.
He has urged men to step up and work hard jointly with other Kenyans in a bid to realize vision 2030.
The URP chairman noted that other counties like the Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, have been flourishing in infrastructure due to hard work. He said that roads in Nairobi are storey and hi-tech just like the ones in the western countries.
“As men of Laikipia North, what are you doing to make this county excel like Nairobi? Wake up, work hard, and take advantage of the many projects introduced to you by various NGO organizations because they invest a lot of money on them”, said Kaparo.
The former Speaker said that the new constitution entails equal development in all the 47 counties in Kenya and that Laikipia County should not be an exception. He therefore challenged men not to waste their valuable resources by indulging in drinking sprees at prestigious Nanyuki hotels.
Mr. Kaparo’s challenge was seconded by the Laikipia North DC Paul Kinyanjui at the official opening of Twala Women Cultural Mayatta in Ilpolei town.
Kinyanjui also criticized men who sell out their animals so as to squander their money into alcoholism.
