Njoro MP Charity Kathambi has called on the national government to expedite disbursement of NG-CDF funds to avert projects being derailed.

Speaking during graduation of students-beneficiaries of short courses under the sponsorship of NG-CDF kitty, Kathambi noted that none of the Constituencies has received money in their kitty for this financial year.

“We have had challenges in implementation of projects and also the bursaries because as we speak now no single coin has been disbursed to all the constituencies and that is an area that should be addressed by the national government” she said.

During the ceremony, the MP also launched the empowerment program for youths through short courses.

According to the first time Jubilee Legislator, most youths in the area are from vulnerable families hence needed to be empowered through education and skills.

“Most of our youths come from vulnerable families and that is why we decided to traverse the constituency and sample them so that we can empower them with technical skills” she said.

The beneficiaries are trained in various courses among them driving, beauty, clothing and textile, catering and engineering.

This,  the Njoro  NG-CDF office has partnered with various colleges such as Rift valley Institute of Business Studies and High View Driving School among others.

Kathambi lauded the National CDF officers for their gesture to visit Njoro Constituency and witness various projects initiated under the NG-CDF kitty.

“I want to commend the National Directors NG-CDF offices. They are here because they are proud of what the kitty is doing in Njoro to transform lives” said Kathambi.

Over 900 youths are beneficiaries of the empowerment program under the sponsorship of Njoro NG-CDF kitty.

National Director NG-CDF George Ole Meshuko on his part lauded the Njoro Constituency for the model classes set up and the effort put towards the education sector.

He challenged the NG-CDF team in various constituencies to ensure best utilization of the funds towards transformation.

“We have gone to several schools in Njoro and we are happy with the classrooms set up. We want to urge our teams on the ground to ensure good utilization of funds” said Ole Meshuko.

Similar sentiments echoed by Dr.Isabel Waiyaki who is also a Director at the NG-CDF National Board.

Dr.Waiyaki maintained that as a Board they will continue to visit projects in various constituencies to ensure value for taxpayers’ money.

“As a Board we will continue to monitor projects to ensure quality work and that the kitty is being utilized well” said Dr. Waiyaki.
