Kenya: Wathika Hands Over Sh2.8 Million Studio to Mukurwe-Ini Churches

FORMER assistant minister Dick Wathika has handed over a Sh 2.8 million studio to churches in Mukurwe-ini.

He handed over the keys to the studio last weekend to the Christian Fellowships which is the umbrella body for all churches Mukurwe-ini district.

Wathika donated the studio to help nurture music talent among the youth. The the construction of the studio, which is based in Mukurwe-ini town, was started six months.

Wathika is vying for Mukurwe-ini Parliamentary seat. He said the studio is not for commercial purposes but tapping the talents of the upcoming musicians.

Wathika imported the equipments from Europe and China. The keyboards and mixer are from China while the microphones, controllers and computers are from Europe.

He said musicians have now a reason to smile as their work will be promoted. "Mukurwe-ini youth who want to record their music will be free and will only be required to pay a small charge of power and VCD writing," he said.

The aspirant who has since recorded his song 'wira ni wira' (job is job) in the new studio said its time for those who have been traveling to Nairobi to take the opportunity and produce their music. He has since started other income generating projects for the young women and also promoting sports for the local youths.
