If you want to go fast, go alone but if you want to go far, go together.

This must have been the mantra for a group of bodaboda riders in Ngong when they set out to pool their resources together for a better and sustainable future.

On Friday, Deputy President William Ruto, while supporting a number of groups from Kajiado County, lauded their efforts saying such initiatives go a long way in boosting livelihoods.

Speaking at his Karen residence, DP Ruto committed to investing in dreams of the youth by providing requisite capital to community-focused projects.

“Encouraged by the milestone Ngong Boda Boda SACCO have brought themselves to own a matatu and supported other groups from Kajiado County with water tanks, catering equipment, public address system, carwash and tailoring machines.

“We have a duty to nurture, encourage and protect small businesses because they not only sustain our huge population but also inspire innovation and stimulate economic growth by generating jobs to the youths,” said the DP.

Adding: “We are therefore investing in viable dreams by providing the requisite capital and technical know-how to community-focused projects; this will boost the livelihoods of the vulnerable and provide a fertile ground for the youths to unlock their potential.”
