PC advises youth

03 January 2013, 16:58 Wangui Joseph

Central Kenya youth have been advised to utilize available resources to improve their livelihoods since the region is potentially wealthy.    

Japhter Rugut, Central Provincial Commissioner, said most parts are agricultural devoted therefore people should embrace farming activities and engage in agri - business projects to upsurge regional economic status.    

Speaking in Nyeri, Rugut also discouraged youths from indulging in illicit brews, drugs and crime.

Notably, most illicit brews have dominated the area and majority of youths in that they spend whole day in drinking dens or in alcoholic stupor.    

According to Rugut, “Though taking alcohol is legal, it is good to follow the set rules and regulations.”    

The administrator blamed high rate of drug abuse in the region as one of the reasons that have deterred development and made it lag behind despite its vast resources.

He admitted that there are some pubs selling liquor at day time notwithstanding the Alcoholic Act that came in to practice early this year.    

However, he acknowledged efforts lay down by Liquor licensing committees at districts level for they have reduced alcoholic businesses operating in the region.    

It has been noticed that about 75 per cent of liquor business owners in the region are women yet every year women are the ones who demand for bars to be closed down.
