On July 15 Mr Charles Mugo, a physically challenged person, wrote to PointBlank appealing to Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Development to "act out of kindness" and issue new and simpler requirements for funding business proposals for the physically challenged persons through the National Council for People with Disability.
Mugo said current regulations require those seeking funding to be in a registered group with a minimum 10 members. He suggested that the rule should be relaxed for the disabled to enable them access the business funds.
"The PS should know that it is very difficult to form such groups since we are not so mobile to socialise with people," he said. Does Mugo's complaint warrant action Dr James Nyikal, PS Ministry of Gender?Last Edited: Fri 26th August 2011 at 09:36:40 AM
