Samburu West MP Naisula Lesuuda has sponsored a Bill that seeks to give interns attached to Gov't institutions compulsory monthly stipends and insurance cover. She says interns deserve to fully focus on their jobs, instead of hawking mandazis at the workplace for fare and upkeep.
This comes as a reprieve to many interns who face the task of raising their upkeeps and other miscellaneous. Most of them always depend on the goodwill of those in charge at the government institution they are stationed at. Considering that most government institution are situated in cities and towns interns are forced to rent houses.
Members of Parliament have a duty now to pass the motion as it is with speed so that interns will start benefiting from it. A recently released parliamentary report from a lobby group indicated that several MPs didn't contribute to parliamentary proceedings at all, on behalf of all interns it is good all MPs contribute to this motion.
This is in order considering the relationship between unemployment and job experience in Kenya among the graduates. I hope they will support the motion thou.
