Nakuru County leaders urged to help the needy

02 January 2014, 16:59 Wilshere

Nakuru - Nakuru County Assembly speaker, Susan Kihika, has emphasized on the need of helping destitute families and children in the county.

Kihika said it is high time leaders from Nakuru county came together to help the orphanage centers that are languishing in poverty.

“As leaders of this county we need to help this street families and children because that is the only way we can be able to fight poverty,” Kihika said.

Speaking on Wednesday after donating clothing and food stuff to St. Pisit children’s home at Kaptembwo ward in Nakuru town, the speaker said the county will be drafting new by-laws that will be seeking to help the orphans.

She said the fight against poverty in the county was a collective responsibility and that the public has a role to play as well.

“The assembly will be formulating motions that will seek to help this families and children because we need to eradicate poverty,” she said.

Kihika also challenged Nakuru town residents to shelve their personal interests and help county government in improving the welfare of the orphanage centers in the town and county.

She said that plans are still underway for the county assembly to be visiting and helping children’s homes on yearly basis.
