The County Government of Kiambu has relaxed the qualification requirements to access Biashara Fund, a county kitty meant to benefit the youth, women and persons living with disability. This was revealed by Thika Sub-County Administrator, Madam Rose Kimani, during the Mashujaa Day Celebrations at the Thika Stadium.

She said that the county government came to that decision after realizing the hardships the applicants went through when trying to access the funds. She informed them that they could collect the application forms from their offices in Room No.4 at the Thika Town Hall.

She also informed the audience that the county government is yet to disburse monies for the county Bursary Fund due to unavailability of funds. 

On El Niño, the county government was doing all it could to clear all drainage and water run-offs to ensure that noone  in the county was in danger of floods or damage to property. She added that the county was enhancing security by improving the town's lighting as well as in the estates. 

She however appealed for patience in the on-going construction works of Kenyatta Highway, especially towards the Gatitu exit. She said that there would be delays since the contractor had been sued by a Thika-Based trader, thus likely to delay the works further.

On the issue of the county askaris harassing traders, she said that her administration would look into it. She informed them that the county government officials had on 15th October this year at the county chambers met and discussed the issue. 
However, she called on the hawkers, bodaboda riders, Tuktuk and matatu drivers to adhere to the law so as to avoid being into conflict with the county askaris.
