Nyamira county governor john Nyagarama and his administration has been challenged to come out clean and explain why Persons Living With Disability (PLWD) in Nyamira County are being discriminated.

Addressing the media on Tuesday Kenya social congress  party chairman Atati Kengere said the party has reports on how PLWD in Nyamira county are being discriminated when it comes to employment.

On Monday this week the Programme manager of the Nyamira Society for Persons Living with Disability Jared Wilberforce said the county employed a section of PLWD to work for Nyamira county in 2016 and they have never been paid their salaries for that period of time.

“We want the governor to explain why they employed a section of PLWD in Nyamira county and have not  been paid their salaries for two years now  when others are still  benefiting from their jobs,”said Atati Kengere.

“The constitution of Kenya allows county governments to give 30 Pc jobs to PLWD ,we don’t know why they are not benefiting from their rights,” added Kengere.

Kengere challenged Nyagarama’s administration to be transparent in employment and to pay county employees salaries to maintain and respect the constitution of Kenya.

He also threatened to join PLWD in Nyamira to protest in the next one week to compel the county to pay their salaries.
