Kazi Mtaani initiative has to succeed


What you need to know:

  • The first phase started in April as a pilot programme focused on select informal settlements in the eight counties of Nairobi, Mombasa, Kiambu, Nakuru, Kisumu, Kilifi, Kwale and Mandera.
  • Kazi Mtaani is a form of social protection for workers whose prospects for daily or casual work has been disrupted by the containment policies put in place to curb Covid-19.
  • At a daily wage of Sh455, and Sh505 for supervisors, this is, perhaps, the country’s most intensive and pervasive rescue plan ever.

At the mention of food security, what comes to mind is ramping up productivity by, among others, using land efficiently, making available and affordable quality farm inputs, as well as following agronomical best practices.
