Uasin Gishu Governor Aspirant Buzeki Promises Economic Boost for the Underprivileged
Uasin Gishu governor aspirant Bundotich Zedekiah Kiprop alias Buzeki has promised to prioritise the empowerment of the less privileged members of the society if elected through the August 9 polls.
Buzeki who pitched tent in Chebarus and Chepkanga in Turbo and Moiben sub-counties respectively said that upon being elected, he will address all the issues affecting the youths, women and people with disabilities.
In the company of his running mate Reuben Chepses, they promised to treat all the citizens of Uasin Gishu equally and equitably.
“We shall adhere to the constitution’s provision of 5% employment of people with disabilities. We shall ensure implementation of 30% procurement provisions for our women,” said Buzeki.
He observed that since the youths are a significant human resource, their administration commits to support and work with them to ensure that they achieve their dreams.
Under their leadership, the duo that was accorded a warm reception by the residents indicated the aged will be accorded respect and celebrated.
“We commit to having an annual senior citizens governor’s roundtable. We shall coordinate and support the senior citizens to access government stipends and other support services. For the senior citizens who are yet to be registered, we shall bring them on board and backdate their payments because they deserve the best in life,” Buzeki further said.
To facilitate this, the aspirants said that they shall set up a mobile delivery unit service that will move around the county detailing all the beneficiaries.
“The delivery unit will also be charged with providing identification cards for senior citizens in the county to access priority service and free parking. At no given time should our able elders suffer neglect,” Buzeki told the residents amid cheers from the swelling crowds who came out in large numbers to welcome the pair.
