Laikipia West MP visits Sipili shopping centre

By Bob Aston 

The MP for Laikipia West Dr. Wachira Karani on 18th January 2013 toured Sipili shopping centre to distribute over 400 birth certificates and driving licenses to residents.
Speaking at Sipili Bus terminal, Hon Wachira promised residents that roads classified under the CDF like Muhotetu-Sipili, Sipili-Ol-Moran road and Kinamba-Sipili-Rumuruti-Nanyuki road will be constructed.
Hon Wachira also said that internal roads within Laikipia County which falls under respective wards will be constructed by the county government.
Hon Wachira noted that security has improved in Sipili Division. He said that he had requested for a security vehicle which was eventually given by the national government to the Anti Stock Theft Unit (ASTU) at Ol-Mutunyi. This he said will help in curbing cases of livestock theft in the area.
Hon Wachira urged youths to register their groups in order to benefit from the youth Fund. “The six (6) billion shilling fund will be disbursed immediately it is passed in parliament’’ He said. Adding that, he has sponsored a motion in parliament to ensure that the government sets aside 6 billion shillings every year for the youth Fund.
“I have sponsored a motion in parliament which if passed; Ksh 6 billion will be set aside for youths each year. This will considerably boost the youth’s kitty,” said Dr. Hon Wachira.
The MP noted that as farmers start preparing their farms to plant, middlemen always exploit them by selling fertilizer at exorbitant prices. He promised farmers that he will look into the issue this year.
“I will meet with the Cereal Board Manager to see how we can distribute fertilizer to the farmers. Government fertilizer is supposed to retail at Ksh 2,500,” said Hon Wachira.
While handing over driving licenses and birth certificates the MP said that the driving initiative will be a continuous process. Those present were informed that already more than 80 individuals have been registered in Ol-Moran and Karaba to attend the driving classes.
Hon Wachira also urged teachers and the government to find solutions to the falling level of education in Laikipia County.
