Kenya Kwanza leaders have assured Kenyans that President Ruto and his administration are taking measures and interventions to bring down the cost of living.

National Assembly Committee on Budget Chair Ndindi Nyoro said that the government has availed more resources in the budget to provide affordable farm inputs such as seeds and fertilizer to increase food production and reduce food imports.

He said Kenya spends 100 billion shillings annually to import edible oils but the government has now availed inputs such as sunflower and canola seeds to reduce imports.

The legislator also said that the government was keen to end the monopoly in the energy sector to enhance efficiency and boost access to electricity among Kenyans.

He noted that the government was working to liberalize the sale of meters in the market by having certified shops selling the products to ensure more Kenyans access to electricity on time.

The lawmakers said that plans to equip youth and cultural center in Wundayi, Taita Taveta County to empower youth through digital jobs, is on course.

Wundayi MP Dawson Mwashako launched the 50 million shillings bursary kitty and the constituency strategic plan.

Mwashako said that the center will serve to protect the unique culture of the local communities and provide jobs for the youth in the region.
