MP rewards pregnant Nyeri women

05 July 2016, 16:31 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - About 15 pregnant women in Othaya, Nyeri County, were surprised after receiving KES 1,000 each from Murang’a MP, Sabina Chege during a public meeting.

Chege said the rare gift was to reward women for their efforts to ensure there is generation survival.

“Am urging women in this region to sire more children so that our population can increase. Personally I have a one-year-old kid,” said Chege who is a former radio personality.

The women were among hundreds of residents attending a public meeting at Othaya Approved Grounds hosted by area MP, Mary Wambui.

Chege advised women to take care of their spouses and families.

She also appreciated that there was reduction in consumption of illicit brews following a crackdown that was ordered by President Uhuru Kenyatta last year.

Chege further condemned the recent wave of school unrest, as she asked teachers, parents and school management boards to work closely with students to stem out conflicts.

“Let us pray for our children. Cases of unrest have increased and they should be addressed immediately. All stakeholders including the students must work together,” said Chege, who is also the chairperson of Education Committee in the National Assembly.

In the recent past close to ten schools in various parts of the country have had their dormitories razed by students.

Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i said that parents of the affected schools should foot for the reconstruction of the destroyed dormitories.

Matiang’i added that no students will be allowed to transfer from the affected schools unless gets a clearance letter from the sub-County Education Director.
