A Blow To Youths Under Kazi Mtaani As They Have To Wait Longer For Their Salaries To Be Procured

Kazi Mtaani is an initiative that was introduced by president Uhuru Kenyatta as a measure to cushion the vulnerable youths against the effects of Covid-19. This virus has literally caused alot of havoc and mayhem all over the world; to many countries it has brought about a very huge financial crisis.

Housing PS Charles Hinga has said there has been a delay in the procuring of the salaries of these youths and they're doing much to make sure that they are paid sooner though he never specified the exact dates of payments.

"We are still awaiting the provision of budget for the final payment of the extended phase 2 of this program. As soon as we receive the funds, we will process them without delay," he said.

This means that the youth have to await for the parliament to pass the 2021/22 budget that was drawn by the ministry of finance. This process of passing the budget could hit a rock as activist Okiya Omtatah had earlier on filed a petition challenging it citing overdraw as to that had been passed by parliament. Kazi Mtaani youths will thus have to wait a bit longer to receive their money.
