Shinyalu - The government should not have given Uwezo fund to the youth and women as a loan, says Kakamega senator Boni Khalwale.
According to Khalwale, the fund should have been converted into a grant to enable the youth and women run businesses without worries of repaying the loan in order to empower themselves, The Standard reports.
He faulted President Kenyatta of giving the youth the money as a loan saying if it could have been used for the presidential re-run then it could not have been returned and therefore should be given out for free.
