Hon. Babu Owino has promised to start supporting restaurant owners and the entertainment Workers monthly to start anytime soon.
Here is what Hon. Babu Owino posted on his Facebook page!
Since the government initiated the protection measures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, the economy has ground to a virtual standstill. Restaurants and entertainment spots have been forced to close down rendering thousands of waiters, waitresses, cooks, bouncers, disc jockeys and other workers in the entertainment industry jobless. This industry employs thousands directly and indirectly.
These Kenyans are now unable to feed their families. So many breadwinners are now jobless. Homes are breaking apart due to financial strain. Suicide rates among young men is higher than it has ever been.
It is because of this that I am in the process of putting in place a financial support program that will put money in the pockets of Embakasi East entertainment workers every month.
In order to qualify for this support, you are required to register at my constituency office in Donholm opposite Donholm Primary School. To register you will need your national ID.The office is open Monday to Friday between 9:00am and 5:00pm.
My office will then process the applications and kick off the support program as soon as possible.
May God see us through this difficult time! God bless Kenya!
