To mark International Youth Day, His Excellency Governor Francis Kimemia on Saturday issued 12 greenhouses; 6 concrete mixers; 24 culvert moulds; 25 welding machines; 25 incubators each with a capacity of 528 eggs and a backup generator; 10 hi-tech knitting machines; 50 singer sewing machines; 50 full package salon equipment and 50 high pressure car wash machines to youth in each of our 25 wards.
Kimemia also handed over 100 certificates of incorporation (C12 certificates) to various youth companies that the County Government has helped to register.
During the event at Ol’Kalou Stadium, he urged young people to prioritize initiatives to support each other in wealth creation and providing lasting solutions to challenges that face us all.
“My Government will continue supporting policies and practices that will aid in the transformation we are witnessing among our young people, including livestock production, marketing, sports, livelihoods diversification, and knowledge management, among other programs,” he said.
He added: “I look forward to working with individuals and organizations that are engaged in positively benefiting our young people.”
The Governor later handed over Nyandarua’s flag to the County team that is participating in the Kenya Inter-County Sports and Cultural Association (KICOSCA) games, which start on Monday in Kisii County.
