Labor Ministry Plans Monthly Cash for Jobless Kenyans in 5 Counties. The Ministry of Labor has offered hope for Kenyans who were rendered jobless in Nairobi, Kiambu, Nakuru, Kajiado, and Machakos.
Labor Cabinet Secretary Simon Chelgui said in a Committee on Labor that he was eyeing part of the Ksh 255 billion IMF loan to provide a monthly stipend for the affected Kenyans.
“I may not be able to state how much because our team is still working on the numbers but we will be able to make our case on exactly how much we will need to cushion the people affected in the five lockdown counties and by extension, those other counties that are connected to the five counties,” CS Chelgui said
Labor PS Peter Tum added that the ministry was compiling data on those who were rendered jobless to determine the budget needed.
The question is, will this be possible when we all know about corruption in the country? Is this not a way of stealing?
