Over 1 Million Kenyans to Receive Monthly Cash Transfer from Government

The Kenya Kwanza government has announced that it has disbursed Ksh.2,101,478,000 to support the vulnerable and poor citizens through the Inua Jamii and NICHE programmes.

The Ministry of Labour and Social Protection said that the funds were released on Friday, December 1, and payment will commence on Monday, December 4.

According to the ministry, 1,044,621 beneficiaries who enrolled in the Inua Jamii programme will receive Ksh.2,000 each for the month of November, totaling Ksh.2,095,360,000.

The Inua Jamii programme is a social protection initiative that was launched in 2015 by President Uhuru Kenyatta to address poverty and inequality in the country. The programme targets the elderly, orphans and vulnerable children, and persons with severe disabilities.

The Kenya Kwanza government has continued to implement the programme and increased the frequency of payments from bi-monthly to monthly following a presidential directive in July 2023.

In addition, 3,059 beneficiaries who enrolled in the Nutrition Improvement through Cash and Health Education (NICHE) programme will receive Ksh.2,000 each, totaling Ksh.6,118,000.

The NICHE programme is a pilot project that aims to improve the nutritional status of pregnant and lactating women and children under two years in selected counties. The programme provides cash transfers and health education to the beneficiaries.

The ministry urged the beneficiaries to adhere to the Covid-19 protocols when accessing their funds from the payment agents. It also warned the public against fraudsters who may try to extort money from them by claiming to facilitate their enrolment or payment.
