Kirinyaga County is not taking chances as over 6000 delegate troop to Kirinyaga University for the sixth Devolution Conference.
Governor Anne Waiguru’s administration has distributed over 150,000 condoms to be used during the conference which kicked off on Monday, March 4 and ends on Friday, March 8.
Kirinyaga County Deputy Public Health Officer Peter Irungu said his officers distributed the condoms to bars and restaurants as well as areas where the delegates will be accommodated.
The Health official further warned bar owners against selling the condoms, noting that the government has paid for them hence they should be issued out for free.
“People should not shy away because distribution of condoms has been going on even when there is no devolution conference,” he said.
During the five-day meeting, the government and its key stakeholders will be reviewing what they have been able to deliver.
