Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala has criticized organizers of Devolution Conference for charging Jobless Youths who form a bulk of the Kenyan population Ksh 20,000 as attendance fee.
The fiery Senator advised organizers to consider lowering the fees in future to enable many youths access the conference.
”it’s extremely inhibitive to deny the youth to attend this conference by charging exorbitant fees of Ksh 20,000”, Malala said.
”The youth need opportunities to showcase their talents as far as agribusiness is concerned. Let DevolutionConference2018 be a youth-friendly convention in future”, Senator Malala added.
Senator Cleophas Malala also asked governors to support the establishment of Ward Development Fund kitty to enable the Members of County Assemblies to participate in development agenda.
