Inua Jamii funds delay

The disbursement comes after concerns over delayed payments of the fund with the department of social protection.

The National Treasury said the delay was occasioned by long transition protocols.

The program, under the Ministry of Labour, targets orphans and vulnerable children; older persons, and persons with severe disabilities.
