Kesses MP Mishra Kiprop has flagged off the disbursement of first batch of Relief foodstuffs to needy Kesses Constituents.
A total of 12,000 vulnerable groups including the elderly and needy people will benefit in food distribution which is valued at Ksh. 30 Million.
Speaking in his Kenmosa Constituency office while flagging off the first caravan loaded with foodstuff to Tarakwa Ward residents, Dr. Mishra said that the donations are meant to cushion people from the economic effects of the curfew.
“As we look for long-term sustainable solution for our people, such small acts of kindness will go a long way in leveraging and supplementing on their strains” said Dr. Mishra
The legislator said plans are underway to sustain the donations until the government’s ongoing curfew is lifted and urged well-wishers from the constituency to come on board and help the people.
“After we are done with Tarakwa Ward today, We shall go to Cheptiret-Kipchamoo Ward on Tuesday 7th April, where over 2500 people will also benefit, This will be followed by a visit to Tulwet Chuiyat & Racecourse Ward respectively” added the Legislator
Dr. Mishra further called upon President Uhuru Kenyatta to continue restricting movement to curb the spread of Corona Virus pandemic.
The government has imposed a dusk to dawn curfew for all Kenyans, except those listed under critical and essential services, making it difficult for ordinary Kenyans to fend for themselves.
Kenya’s positive cases stand at 126 with four deaths and four recoveries from the deadly virus as at Friday, April 3, 2020.
