President Uhuru’s promise to Nairobi residents during his Kayole visit

President Uhuru Kenyatta has revealed that the Kazi Mtaani program which ends on March 4, 2021 might be extended.

While addressing Kayole residents on Friday, February 19, 2021, the Head of State said that he had been approached by youth from Kiambu and Nairobi Counties urging him to extend the Kazi Mtaani program.

“When I was in Uthiru and Kiamaiko, and here, the youth have said they want Kazi Mtaani back, do you agree with them? Let’s see what we will do to have the program back,” Uhuru said.

The head of state commissioned the Soweto Hospital during his tour to Kayole region.

The Kazi Mtaani program was launched last year with a view to provide social protection for casual labourers affected by COVID-19 pandemic and it is under the State Department of Housing and Urban Development.

The beneficiaries of the Kazi Mtaani are entitled to a weekly wages of Ksh. 1,000 which is paid by the State Department of Interior and Co-ordination of the National Government through mobile money transfer.

President Uhuru asked Kenyans to support the BBI Bill, stating that it will ensure that more money is allocated to counties.

The commander in Chief also stated that Kenyans are enjoying peace and unity due to his handshake with ODM leader Raila Odinga.

“Are Kenyans living in peace together? Are they eating together like brothers? I ask then, did I do anything wrong when I shook my brother’s hand?” The President noted.

The head of state further warned politicians against divisive politics stating that it will cause disunity among Kenyans.
