Govt to support Muslims in Kisii with opportunities

National Parliamentary Majority Chief Whip Sylvanus Osoro has said the government is committed to ensure Muslims faithful residing in Kisii are mainstreamed into political leadership.

He said the faithful , majority of them being from the Nubia community, had been sidelined for far too long adding that this has deprived them opportunities to be of service to the community.

Going forward, he said, they will ensure government appointments factor them in .

“We shall have discussions with your leaders so that we can get names of the right people you want given soms opportunities in government and that will start the long term engagement plan of empowering you as a people resident here,” the Majority Chief Whip said.

The South Mugirango MP said already the Housing project due to be launched in Nyanchwa by the President in the coming weeks would provide jobs to hundreds of youth from the Nubia community who would show interest.

” Even as we await those appointments to come, let our youth ensure they avail themselves for recruitment when construction starts,” Osoro stated.

The legislator also thanked the community for supporting the government and overwhelmingly voting for President William Ruto during the last General elections.

Osoro was among leaders invited to mark end of Ramadhan festivity.
