The Nyandarua County women representative, Faith Gitau has called upon the area Governor, Francis Kimemia to remove the ban on Sunday market day, saying continued ban was affecting common traders who sold their produce to meet their daily needs.
Speaking at Ol Kalou town the women representative said though the directive by Governor Kimemia to ban Sunday market days across the county was meant to allow people go to church, market traders should be allowed to go on with their business..
Market traders should be allowed to operate even on Sundays as most of them do not have any other source of income and hence do this to meet their basic needs, said the women representative.
The women representative urged the governor to remember Nyandarua women when assigning jobs and allow them to carry out their small business in the market on any day of the week even on Sunday.
Gitau complemented the governor for recruiting 1000 youths across the county to work with different departments in the county.
Thanks to the governor for recruiting one thousand youth, continue with the same spirit and employ even more to reduce the unemployment rate in this county which will also reduce the crime rate, said Gitau.
She called upon her fellow leaders to have a ‘handshake’ that will unite them as one body and be able to work together for the benefit of Nyandarua residents.
