Women groups in Naitiri from Tongaren Sub County were a happy lot after receiving tents and plastic chairs from Bungoma County women representative Dr. Reginalda Wanyonyi to help them establish an income earning project.

Dr. Reginalda said the project was given to successful groups that applied for the funding saying as we near the festive season the tents and chairs may be hired at different functions and that will enable the members of the groups to have something beneficial at the end of the day.

She further disclosed that more groups will also benefit from the affirmative action fund kitty saying it is meant to boost the livelihoods of the women and youths to enable them to start development projects that will plough back profit.

The beneficiaries thanked the Women representative for the project saying they will take care of the project and also expand it further saying they have now been empowered and have to work hard to sustain the project.

On politics, Dr. Reginalda called upon Amani National Congress leader Musalia Mudavadi to join Jubilee Party instead of considering forming a coalition with the cord coalition under the National Super Alliance (NASA).

“The CORD coalition has three principals now and they’ve not come up with a flag bearer and my brother Musalia joining the coalition will complicate issues further, he should join the Jubilee party so as to help propel development for the people of Western Kenya,” she said.

She said after joining jubilee party the people of Bungoma are going to realize more development projects saying they have to be able to reciprocate that by voting in President Uhuru Kenyatta for the second term.

However, she urged politicians to desist from peddling retrogressive politics of propaganda and malice saying they should focus on issue-based politics and have the electorates themselves decide on whom to vote for in the forthcoming general election.
