Over 1000 youth from Kesses Constituency, Uasin Gishu County are set to benefit from free training in divergent fields thanks to the Constituency’s empowerment program initiated by their member of the National Assembly Hon. Kiprop Mishra Arap Chelulei.
The youth will be awarded their admission letters at an event to be held at the Eldoret Sports Club on Friday 26th July, 2019 during which the Constituency’s strategic plan will be officially launched. The event will be graced by Energy CS Hon. Charles Keter, over 50 Mps, many senators including Leader of Majority Hon. Kipchumba Murkomen and several Governors Led by the host Governor H.E. Jackson Mandago. The Guest of Honor will be Senate Speaker Hon. Kenneth Lusaka.
Among those to be awarded on the material day include 700 youth who will take several diploma courses at the Eldoret National Polytechnic and various TVETs, 230 others who will be issued with driving licenses after successfully completing driving courses and 100 women who will each be awarded a dairy cow to help boost their dairy farming activities.
Speaking to Kalenjins Online, Hon. Mishra said the initiative is meant to empower his constituents while equipping them with important technical skills badly needed to compete in our cutthroat world. “The true mark of a leader isn’t the amount of talking he does, but the direct positive impact of his policies and programs on the lives of his or her constituents. At Kesses Constituency, we have a good track record of doing such work with this being the sixth time we are hosting such an event in our constituency. I am working very hard to attract more like minded partners and funding to help us reach more constituents faster,” he said.
He welcomed all his constituents and other Kenyans to attend the function which will kick off at 8:00 am and will feature several musicians and artists including Bahati, Sweetstar, Olesoss Melodies, Mr. Israel aka Young man, Rose Cheboi aka Very nice tumdo DJ Warship and Comedian Kipsalbei among others. Lunch will be served for all guests.
