Nairobi County Woman Representative Esther Passaris on Wednesday October 2 publicly expressed her disgust towards the manner in which some youth handle public investments.

Speaking in Nairobi while disbursing bursary cheques to orphans, the enraged woman representative vowed to personally collect back televisions offered to the youth for startups.

"I will come to collect those TVs and give them to those willing to use them in the way that they should" affirmed Passaris.

The legislator explained that they had identified youth groups from different wards and handed them over 50 television sets.

"There are groups that registered with us, and we gave them free televisions, DSTV connection and 50 seats each so that they generate revenue from the spaces, some of these groups, however, sold the sets," she ranted.

She further stated that some of those who were given the machines took them to their homes and others sold them.

Passaris, however, stated that there were those who made good use of the equipment and are currently reaping positively.

"We want to teach them how to become entrepreneurs and how to seat and talk to each other," she added.

The woman representative in May 2019 issued 50 DSTV sets with a 5-month subscription alongside the televisions and fifty seats to youths who showed an intention of getting into the football business.
