I issued 150 wheelchairs to people living with disabilities, received through the Walk About Foundation. Nyandarua is the first County to benefit from the initial consignment of 440 wheelchairs received from the US-based organisation. Understanding disability should help us lovingly confront those in our neighbourhood who still peddle unfounded, dangerous lies about PLWDs. This is important, because the number of people living with disabilities will continue growing as a result of population increase, aging, and medical advances that preserve and prolong life. According to the 2009 census, Nyandarua has over 16,000 PLWDs. Out of these, 5,303 have physical disabilities. My Government will continue supporting PLWDs through bursaries, tax waivers, procurement opportunities and other measures.
