Senators want village elders remunerated

01 October 2013, 15:35 Robert Kibet

Nakuru - Senators are planning to support a motion to be tabled by West Pokot senator, John Lonyangapuo, seeking to have village elders salaried.

Nakuru County nominated senator under the URP party, Lizah Chelule, confirmed that the senators have hinted their plan to unanimously support the motion saying the move will enhance timely communication of information on security and other issues.

“We are expecting senator Lonyangapuo to table the motion and we are ready to support it as we all know that village elders play a greater role at the grassroots administration. This will motivate the village elders in delivering their service to the community,” said Chelule.

Regarding the funds launched by the government four years back to support the elderly, Chelule said that they have already managed to change the name of the fund from elderly fund to senior citizens fund.

She said proper profiling needed to be done in order to ensure that every eligible elderly person benefits from the fund.

The 1999 census established that village elders are located in 6 612 sub- locations in the country.
