Updated Monday, May 6th 2013 a 00:00 GMT +3

Ministry of Special Programmes PS Andrew Mondo has challenged security organs in Nyanza to safeguard Government property following increase in theft of computers.
“Eight computers out of 25 donated by United Nations Development Programme ( UNDP) and European Union were recently stolen from trade department in Kisumu. I have written a letter to security committees in this region seeking an explanation,” he said.
Mr Mondo said the Government and other investors are ready to empower young people by equipping them with tools of trade and skills to ensure they develop economically. The most recent incident happened a week ago at Kisumu District agriculture offices where two computers disappeared after a break in.
According to Kisumu DC Willy Cheboi, officers who were manning the premise are being questioned by police.
He said UNDP gave Sh133 million grant to support development activities of women and youths in four areas namely, Nakuru, Kisumu, Eldoret and Kitale.
Mondo was speaking while donating salon equipment and sewing machines from UNDP to 16 youth groups within Kisumu County.

“We have a national steering and a monitoring and evaluation committees to achieve sustainability of the projects,” he said.
County Youths Director Timothy Kajwang’ said the 16 groups come from Kondele, Carwash, Nyawita, Manyatta, Nyalenda and Obunga estates in Kisumu town.
He said UNDP had already provided 50 exotic cows, farm inputs and fishing gears to farmers in Muhoroni and Nyakach constituencies. Kisumu County Commissioner Lonah Odero said the empowerment programme was meant to enhance development in Kisumu County. She urged the groups to be aggressive and ensure they generate income.
“The intention of the projects is to create employment, produce goods and in the long run reduce cases of insecurity,” she said.
