Kitui South MP Dr. Rachael Nyamai has urged the Jubilee government to consider her constituents during distribution of employment opportunities in the country.
The jubilee legislator who is serving her second term in parliament said Kitui South had come of age for consideration in top government jobs.
She said the region has continued to offer unwavered support to president Uhuru Kenyatta both before and after his re-election campaign despite the common knowledge that Kitui County was an opposition zone.
“Kitui South gave president Uhuru Kenyatta more votes than any other constituency in Kitui County and their support for the president remains even today” she said.
She further commended president Kenyatta for his decision to reduce the VAT on petroleum products to 8% from the 16% set in the Finance Bill 2018 which he reviewed and returned to parliament.
“I equally thank president Kenyatta for standing with the majority of Kenyans on the matter of VAT on fuel considering the already high cost of living in the country” she added.
At the same time, Dr. Nyamai said the parliamentary committee for lands which she chairs will work closely with the government to ensure land demarcation and issuance of title deeds is completed across the country to benefit all Kenyans.
” We as a committee shall fastrack the issuance of title deeds to Kenyans who are yet to receive ownership documents for their land” she pledged.
Dr. Nyamai spoke in Mutomo town where she had hosted other legislators for the Huduma Mashinani programme spearheaded by the ministry of public service, youth and gender affairs.
The ministry’s chief administrative secretary (CAS) Rachael Shebesh graced the event where cheques worth Ksh20 Million were issued to local women and youth groups.
