We have embarked on a journey to support our youth( the Mbaya Mbaya Liberation Army) in small scale businesses in the Transport sector, Hospitality, Agribusiness, Beauty and therapy, Welding, Mechanics, Plumping, and training.
This is out of the concern that most youths lack capital and security for bank loans Nimrod said, No two ways to it, we cant die poor, we would rather die trying. he added.
Mp urged youth to be more proactive in making money rather engaging in drug abuse and substances , saying they are the future of the kitui.
