Laikipia Youth To Gain From Ksh. 40 Million In Road Project In The Recovery County Budget

Laikipia has allocated Ksh. 40 million in road projects that will be done by the youth, as the county ramps up its efforts to hasten the economic recovery in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The move marks a major step in alleviating the impact of job losses on the skilled youthful population in the county, a development that is set to inject a fresh approach on youth empowerment.
Governor Ndiritu Muriithi, in his address to stakeholders during the proposed budget estimates engagement for the next financial, expressed optimism that the youth are capable of delivering quality road projects such as culverts and other drainage works, beyond the ordinary engagements in lighter duties such as bush clearing on road sides.
The youth have demonstrated their ability to deliver quality projects in the construction of Pesi-Salama-Gatundia Road under the Roads Programme 2000, Governor Muriithi said, adding that the youth are managing remarkable road projects under the county equipment leasing programme.
The proposed allocation is set to expand the reach by involving more youths on rural road works, promoting skills utilization besides job creation for over 2000 Laikipia youths.
