Kajiado County Governor Dr. David Nkedianye on friday attended the prayers and blessing ceremony of Irkimayiana at Ewaso secondary school. The event was used to mark the erosion of some of the cultural practices like FGM, early marriages and other practices that brought together all the youth of Kajiado west constituency.
The governor urged the Irkimayiana to work hard in their studies.
“Work hard in your education because you are lucky your fathers are there to fight for you and the land of this great county. Education is the light, don’t worry about fees as many of us here have learnt through bursaries. Be bright and protect your community.” Said Dr Nkedianye
On the land saga, the governor said land is not for sale in Kajiado County.
“We have banned the sale of land in this county because we are looking at the young generation to have a place to call home in future.” Said the governor
To the Irkimayiana the county boss wish them the best in future to be able to protect their community.
The senator of Kajiado county honorable Peter Mositet who also graced the event, emphasized on the importance of land saying it’s a curse to sell it.
“It’s a curse to sell land and wananchi should forbid from selling. I thank the governor for banning the sale of land and we need to produce a list of shame of those who are selling land because they are letting us down.” Said Hon. Mositet
The CECM for roads and public works Dickson Ntikoisa said the youth must preserve their culture.
“We must preserve our culture like the Jews but we must stop some cultural practices that drag us backwards as a community. FGM should stop, early marriages and many other past practices be left behind.” Said Hon Ntikoisa
The leader of Irkimayiana Ntikoisa ole Kimani said the prayers was important to unite all the youth of the area.
“This event united all the youth of this constituency together and we want to take this county far in education, respect and protect the land of our area. We want to make history. I urge the youth of this county to work hard and follow the footsteps of our leaders and they will prosper.” Said Ntikoisa
Ewaso secondary school has a lot of problem of water but the county government has promised to work on it.
