Persons living with disabilities in Thika have formed an association to champion for their rights. Thika West Sub-County Disability Development Forum secretary Nancy Nyamenya said the group will unify them and accord them the much needed opportunity to attract resources from county and national governments.
Nyamenya urged all disabled people not to shy away from asking for their share of services from both governments.

“Persons living with disabilities should be firm in seeking county funds by applying for tenders and jobs in Kiambu government,” she said.

Dennis Mukiri was elected the group’s chairperson during the Tuesday polls held at Thika Probations Hall in a fete that was attended by 218 persons living with disabilities.

The chairperson appealed to the new office bearers to champion for the group’s interest to help uplift their livelihoods.

“We have now been mandated to front for your rights without fearing or relenting. We now have a responsibility of directing you as well as forwarding your resolutions to relevant authorities. We are ready to do all that,” said Mukiri.

Dorcas Karimi, Patrick Kiringu, Ann Wambui and Titus Mugo were elected as vice person, vice secretary, coordinator and treasurer respectfully.
