Youths to get a weekly ksh.2500 in the newly launched tree planting program; Nairobi county governor, Johnson Sakaja has assured.
After abolishing kazi mtaani , president William Ruto argued that the Uhuru- led program was outdated, and youths needed something decent to do.
He then introduced tree planting program, which will be a win win for both the country in terms of drought mitigation and a pay for the youth to somehow, sustain themselves.
Sakaja said,”We agreed with our President that the young people that we are focusing on, instead of what we had as kazi mtaani, we are soon launching a programme of tree planting.”
“Our young people will be engaged in and they will be getting Sh25oo per week. They will help us plant trees and maintain trees,” he added.
Sakaja further praised the program saying it will be specifically good for the outlook of Nairobi County.
He said,” If you go up KICC, which is my former office, and you look around, you see three ecological zones, there is the green side, then there is the brown side and then there is a side that looks like a desert.”
“We must plan trees in the city and bring back its glory; the green city,” he added.
