She further challenged them to check on the development of regulations that will ensure the effective implementation of the Siaya County Youth Training and Empowerment Bill, 2021.
On his part, Siaya Muungano Network Program Coordinator, Mr. Hillary Omondi echoed their commitment to collaborate with the County Assembly in a bid to ensure the smooth implementation of the recently passed Siaya County Youth Training and Empowerment Bill, 2021 as well as the consideration of the Gender Equality and Women Empowerment Bill and The Persons with Disability Bill.
