Bahati MP Onesmus Kimani Ngunjiri has appealed to the National government to set more funds towards nurturing talents among young people.
Speaking over the weekend at Ahero grounds ,Maili tisa in Bahati during a football tournament sponsored by the Bahati National Government Development Fund-NGCDF,the legislator stated sports is the only way that can help address the challenges facing youths in society.

“My office has tried to assist the youths of this area but the only problem is that the funds we are given is little.We need to work with other MPs to see how this can be addressed” he said.
