Speaking during the function, CS Amina Mohamed called on the heads tasked with the kitty to exercise due diligence.

She continued by calling on the heads to ensure that there is gender equality in the programme across the 47 counties.

Those with special needs and the disable will be allocated 30% of the cash as directed by the Sports CS.

“I direct HoDs and Agencies involved in implementing this programme to guarantee & uphold due diligence.

To also ensure that there is gender equity and artists from across the 47 counties are represented; 30% of whom will be vulnerable groups and persons living with disabilities.”

Local media stations have been called upon to step in and support the artists further by allocating the 60% quota to them.

The allocation will not only benefit them now but also in days after the pandemic is over.
