Mrs. Kariuki made the remarks during the launch of Huduma Mashinani programme and the issuance of Affirmative Action Funds in the County at Sabasaba Catholic Church, Maragwa in Murang’a County.

Revealing that over Ksh 101 million have so far been distributed to over 9,815 groups this year alone, CS Kariuki directed the officers from the Affirmative Funds present to enlist and train residents on the benefits accrued from government opportunities so as to transform their livelihood.

The more you repay, the more we give you this money. I will not shy away from disbursing the loans so that we uplift the welfare of our people,” CS Kariuki affirmed.
