Governor William Kabogo has advised ex-alcoholics in Kiambu County to form self-help groups to get biashara loans of Sh100,000 from his government.

Speaking on Wednesday in Kiandutu slum where he launched the Muungano Group Slum upgrading, bio-metric registration and counting of slum dwellers, Kabogo said that the Jubilee administration wanted the youth to be self-reliant so as to avoid crime. He informed the audience that he had asked county commissioner, Mrs. Esther Maina to organise mobile registration of IDs to ensure more youth benefited from opportunities arising from the Jubilee Government's agenda.

Kabogo also opened a new public block containing a toilet and hall. The hall will be converted into a cyber cafe with a 5Mbps internet speed, for use by slum dwellers. The governor praised the Shack/Slum Dwellers International for building two public toilets in the slum for Sh2 million. The toilets will be connected to the main sewer line.

Responding to the plea of the area M.C.A. Mr. Kennedy Mwangi (KENTAMS), Kabogo said the Kiambu government would reduce the price of a 20 litre jerrican of water from Sh3 to Sh1.50. He added that, by December this year, all houses would provided with clean water by his administration.

The area MCA had urged the county complete the construction of the stalled sewer line as well as giving former alcoholics business loans to re-start their lives.
