Parents with children living with disabilities have been urged to take their children to school bearing in mind that they also have a right to education. This was said by Bunyala East MCA Rodgers Nato during the burial of Mzee Jotham Njuku, father to Selah Mukhwana a member of Buheri West FM Salaams Club in Namirama, Navakholo Constituency.

“Am urging parents with children living with disabilities not to deny them a chance in life. In the County Assembly we have leaders representing them and it was through education that they got such a chance, therefore, let us not see these children as a curse or a challenge but remember God created them with a purpose. Let us not infringe their rights to a better future,” said Nato

Nato told parents to give their children advice during this long holiday to keep them from indulging in acts that may lead to crime and perhaps early pregnancies.

These sentiments were echoed by the senior assistant chief of the area Mrs. Lilian Musi who stressed that this holiday is too long, therefore, parents need to be close to their children and guide them on what to do and what they aren’t supposed to do.

“As parents please be close to your children, don’t let them to be moving from one end to the other, keep them engaged in house chores. By doing so you will be helping them to grow up as responsible people in the society,” said Mrs. Musi.

Kakamega Flying Umbrella Chairman Chris Nyongesa appreciated fans for condoling with one of them and urged them to maintain the spirit. He also thanked West Media for being part of them during the burial and prayed that the same trend continues in future.

“Let me take this chance to thank you for coming in large numbers in this burial, let us continue standing with each other in all situations. I also want to thank our media for making it up here to condole with us, we are proud of you since you have made us gain recognition everywhere we step,” stated Nyongesa.

Vice chairman Palang’a Palo Palo urged fans that are not in any Salaams club to make haste and join since it is only in a club that one will be recognized, and one becomes easily accessible.

West Media was represented by Millicent Kubai, Nickson Nabangi and Victoriah Nang’oni who send the company’s condolences and thanked fans for standing with Selah.
