Samburu West University Students Spend a Day with their MP

Samburu West University Students Spend a Day with their MP

It was a day like no other on the 23rd of December 2017, when for the 1st time in the history of Samburu West Constituency, students from tertiary institutions spent a day with the Member of Parliament to consult on matters of bursaries and other issues affecting the comrades.

When given a chance to speak, the students were very grateful for the opportunity given to express their challenges when they try to access bursaries from the county government and from former CDF office. The students anonymously agreed that dialogue and consultation was the way to go in solving the challenges they had raised.

Their MP, Hon Naisula Lesuuda OGW, on the other hand, promised to involve the students in the decision making concerning the bursary application process. Secondly, she informed the students that as opposed to earlier CDF office practices, only those who deserve bursary will be given. To this the students applauded!

The students left hopeful that finally, they have a Member of Parliament who listens to them and good days lie ahead for the education development of Samburu West Constituency.

The girls were treated to a special boxing day on 26th December 2017 when their MP, Hon Naisula Lesuuda paid them a visit. In her speech, she thanked the Missionary Sisters of Mary Immaculate for standing in the gap and saving the young girls from early marriages and supporting them to get an education. She said education is the only sure tool to ensure the girls have a brighter future.

She urged the girls to work hard in school, appreciating the opportunity that life had given them. She asked them to look up to her as a role model because she had risen to become the first female elected MP from Samburu as a result of education and determination.

In her closing remarks, she promised to continue supporting the center as she had made it a tradition to visit on the 26th of December, a day that is famously known for exchanging gifts and spreading the joy especially to the of the less fortunate in society. She proceeded to present the goodies she had brought to the girls and they were very excited.

Indeed it was a perfect Boxing day for the girls at Suguta Rescue Center.

Towards Universal Healthcare for Samburu West

Towards Universal Healthcare for Samburu West

On March 5th 2017, Hon Naisula Lesuuda made some headway in her quest to ensure the work towards attaining universal healthcare in Samburu West kicks off.

After several meetings with the NHIF and World Vision in the past few weeks, she was able to bring on board more partners including AMREF, Childfund, and the County Government of Samburu.

They agreed that the first step is to come up with a tool of identifying the most vulnerable, those who are able to make partial payments and those who are able to pay and don’t have enough information.

She promised to share more details regarding the project once all data is ready, citing that inclusivity brings the diversity of brains together to solve our societal problems.

She hopes to lay the foundation for achieving one of her campaign pledges; towards universal healthcare for the people of Samburu West.
