Deputy President William Ruto has committed to fully fund a 500-chicken farm project for parents of two Nyandarua kids who paid him a visit at his Karen residence in Nairobi on Thursday August 13, 2020.
The second in command noted that the two kids, Teresiah Wakinyua and James Mwangi from Kwa Nganga village in Nyandarua County, reminded him of his childhood in his rural home, the daily challenge of budgeting for so little in the face of many needs.
Ruto went ahead to share the details of his conversation with Teresiah and Mwangi.
He said that he had encouraged them not to surrender, their circumstances notwithstanding.
Ruto assigned his farm manager to personally ensure their parents establish a fully-funded 500-chicken farm. This, he said, is to ensure that the kids have a stable foundation to make their dreams come true
He further noted that the two represent everyone’s collective story of possibilities as a people.
The kids who were with their parents had been accompanied by Nyandarua Women Representative Faith Gitau.
