A youth group in Kisumu has lauded President Uhuru Kenyatta for the recently launched project in Nyalenda a notorious a sprawling estate in the lakeside city of Kisumu under a programme dubbed youth empowerment and slum upgrading.
Addressing press in Kisumu town this morning the Youth group, Change In A life commonly referred to as CHINA challenged other top political leaders to take a cue from the head of state in ensuring that youth are empowered.
CHINE secretary Mr. Salim Ombima Aka Boy lamented that the opposition has a tendency of putting the country into a campaign mood instead of paying attention to the development and peace.
Through the Nyalenda project approximately 4,000 youths from the informal settlement will be engaged in clean-ups and construction of toilets, medical clinics and police posts.
Mr. Ombina noted that the move has boosted regional in terms of economy and called on the president to consider making numerous tours in the region.
Mr. Ombina at the samer time thanked the locals for the rousing welcome offered to the head of state saying it was a sign of total maturity from the voters.
The president said the upgrading of Nyalenda slum paves the way for the improvement of the remaining three informal settlements of Manyatta, Obunga and Nyawita in Kisumu County.
