The Deputy President Dr William Samoei Ruto, PhD is expected to be the Chief Guest during a ceremony cum funds drive in aid of widows, persons living with disability, youth and women groups in Tana River County.

The activity organized by the Woman Representative Mama Rehema Hassan will take place on Thursday 12th September, 2019 at Garsen from around 11.00am. The Chief Guest has a tight schedule on that day, so the groups, individuals and members of the public are being advised to come early.

The office of the Woman Representative with support from the National Government Affirmative Action Fund (NGAAF) and well wishers have procured a consignment of assorted equipment that will be distributed to the youth, women groups, individuals and persons living with disability. The consignment include:

  1. Modern sewing
  2. Modern salon & Babar’s equipment
  3. Tents & chairs
  4. Fishing nets
  5. Market shed umbrellas
  6. Car & boda boda washing machines

The equipment being distributed to the groups is meant to build their capacity to make a living out of what they do on a daily basis. Similar equipment distributed to a few groups proved to be of great help to the beneficiaries.

Mama County is therefore requesting people of Delta to come out in large numbers to welcome the Deputy President and support the groups by donating generously.

Rome was not built in a day, Mama believes if we get our priorities right and target the vulnerable groups, we shall move forward
