Embu: Kivuti releases development blueprint

By Justus Karanja

After suffering a setback where his running mate abandoned him for joined Jubilee Party, Embu gubernatorial aspirant and Devolution Empowerment Party Chairman Lenny Kivuti (pictured) has released his blueprint for the youth and farmers.

The former senator suffered a setback after Emilio Kathuri who he had picked as running mate abandoned him for Jubilee.

Kathuri said his defection was informed by the fact that the former senator has no capacity to win the seat in the August 9 General Election.

But Kivuti has moved on, and released his blueprint for the youth and farmers.

He states that his administration will give full bursaries to university students (comrades).

It will also offer attachment and internships to both comrades and graduates.

The inclusion of Comrades Representative's in all county committees like bursary committee and development committee is another sweetener.

Creation of County Education Fund Kitty in conjunction with Higher Education Loan Board (HELB) where comrades will be able to apply for county funds as they do to HELB on top of county bursaries is another sweetener for the youth.

His administration will also organize talents shows every year for comrades and youths to showcase their talents to promote them.

Reviving Mr and Mrs Tourism which died long ago in Embu as well as supporting all other existing talents among the youths and comrades is another undertaking.

His administration will promote rural industrialisation by starting industries in most markets in Embu which will create jobs for graduates and youth.

Kivuti will also ensure 30% of county contracts go to the youth, including comrades.

Ease Youth funds application process for youths and ensure regular allocations is another undertaking.

Kivuti will also ensure a youth is nominated as MCA to represent youths and comrades in the County Assembly.

He will also consider comrades in every financial budget by supporting their activities and meetings as well as partnering with them in all functions.

Sponsoring a slot of needy Form Four dropouts to join technical institutes for a course of their choice is another pledge.

He will also ensure plausible plans are put in place to provide subsidised farm inputs, source finances to establish factories and agriculture-based industries, and infrastructure that will put farmers in a good position to produce quality farm produce and market their goods competitively.

He will also revolutionise agriculture and marketing of produce to benefit the people.
