Photos:Kibera youth receive posho mill bought by Uhuru
“The last time we were here these young men requested for a posho mill to enable them to become more self-sustaining. Our duty, on behalf of his excellency, was to deliver it,” Waiguru said.
The Kibera youth who will manage the posho mill currently own a poultry farm, rabbits, a water supply business, three toilets and two bathrooms.
Waiguru noted that the machine was made by James Kaka, a beneficiary of the Youth Entreprise Development Fund. She said the delivery of the posho mill shows that “we are committed to doing what we promise”.
Waiguru advised the youth to continue working hard at cleaning up and developing Kibera, and at growing their businesses.
“When the president came to our stand at the Nakuru show he said there was a group in Kibera that had asked for a posho mill. Since we had displayed it he said he would pay for it and he did,” Kaka said at the function.
The youth requested for the posho mill from Uhuru when he visited Kibera.
“We have received between Sh50,000 and Sh2.5 million from the youth fund,” Kaka added.
