Mheshimiwa Koros presentation before Question-Answer session.
The KCB Branch Manager talked about Investments. His presentation was accompanied by practical examples of how youths can deal with money, money that will add value to their business and therefore their lives. He advised youths to engage with banking institutions and borrow money (loans) and start entrepreneural projects and become entrepreneurs, not businessmen/women.
Mrs Emily Sigot was calm and composed and step by step presented key functions of the Youth Ministry in the county. As the CO in the docket she explained categorically how the government is ready to fund youths with economic projects, especially in the IT/ICT sector.
Question and Answer session got Mr Koros Kiptoo the youth representative on a “HotSeat.” Nandi Hills felt that they have been sidelined several times in public participation and inclusion. Funding youths in Nandi Hills, like Koros mentioned, became a news to this town because close allies of the Governer and the County Government come from Mosop area, and youths from the area have enjoyed funds and empowerment than the marginalized areas.
