Makueni: Investing in the Elderlies through CBOs

Makueni county women representative, Hon. Rose Museo poses with elderly members of the Andu Akuu Community-Based Organisation (CBO) after issuing them with walking aids.

Days after issuing registeration certificates and cash cheques to Community-Based Organisations (CBOs) in Makueni East constituency, Makueni county’s women representative, Hon. Rose Museo has started a program to support the Elderlies in the county.

This is after the lawmaker presented walking aids to members of the Andu Akuu CBO based in Makindu Ward.

This comes barely days after the CBO received a cheque of 100k for their table banking alongside other CBOs in the region.

The event was graced by the area MCA & the Ward Administrator.

Hon Rose Museo issued different walking assistance devices and mobility aids designed to help elderly people who have problems of moving around safely. The likelihood of falling as one grows older increases quite a bit and a fall can be dangerous

Among the gadgets issued by the lawmaker are Canes, Crutches, Walkers and Wheelchairs to provide safety and support to those who need it.

Also present was the Kibwezi West Coordinator Christine, who noted that despite being among the people named as ‘silent’ in the national assembly, it is much better to focus on development than speaking in parliament. She asked the beneficiaries to elect leaders who will focus on developing the County rather than talkimhalot in the national assembly.
