Nakuru county govt asked to support street families

28 November 2013, 17:14 Wilshere

Nakuru - Nakuru Nominated Senator, Liza Chelule,has appealed to county government to consider allocating funds to the welfare of the physically challenged and the street families.

She said the physically challenged were still marginalized, despite the fact that the constitution provides welfare for them.

Chelule spoke in Nakuru on Wednesday when she met a network of the physically challenged people and proposed that a budget should be provided by county governments to help the group of people.

She said the marginalised groups which include orphans and widows should not be left to the national government. "All of us, including leaders and individuals should be involved in addressing the plight of the marginalized groups," she said.

Chelule said it was paramount that the economic welfare of the marginalised groups should be boosted to allow for development. She pointed out that some of the physically challenged individuals had talent which should be exploited.

The legislator said the plight of  street families were in some cases related to the family backgrounds and  that society had a responsibility  to ensure that the number is reduced.

She hailed the initiative by the first lady, Margret Kenyatta to fight the woes facing the girl child and said leaders should emulate her.
