Kenya: Kabete Aspirant Donates Land for Youth Projects

A Kabete parliamentary hopeful James Wanjohi has donated a two-acre plot for a youth resource centre. He donated the worth Sh6.5 million land through his Wanjohi Foundation.

Wanjohi said he made the move after realising that most of the youth in Kikuyu are idle. He said the youth will use the land for projects "I have decide to give the land to the Kikuyu youth so that they can have somewhere to work from," said the 28-year-old Wanjohi.

"We shall embark on opening departments like welding, masonry and, catering. We shall introduce the youth to processing of food like mushrooms."

Wanjohi was speaking during his campaign tour at Mugumoini shopping centre. He said he will not give handouts to the youth but instead he will show them "important things to do".
