Deputy President William Ruto has urged well-wishers and development partners to step forward and support the Government in mitigating the effects of the COVID-19 outbreak.
He said the pandemic had disrupted businesses, resulting to job cuts.
The Deputy President said even though the Government had come up with a Sh57 Billion stimulus package to cushion the economy from the crisis, more needed to be done.
“In addition to Government aid, every Kenyan has an opportunity to help those affected because we cannot reach out to everyone,” he noted.
Dr Ruto spoke today at his Karen residence where he launched an empowerment programme targeting 5,000 youth living in Nairobi’s informal settlement.
