Subject: Policy to regulate automobile artisans in the County

Subject: Policy to regulate automobile artisans in the County      THAT, aware that Article 55 of the Constitution 2010 provides for the State to take measures, including affirmative action programmes to ensure that the youth have opportunities to access relevant education and training, have opportunities to associate, be represented and participate in political, social, economic and other spheres of life, access employment and are protected from harmful cultural practices and exploitation; further aware that recent years have witnessed increase of automobile (Jua Kali) garages in the County which are operated mostly by youths; concerned that most of these garages operates without clear regulations resulting in poor servicing of clients’ vehicles hence increasing accidents in our roads; noting that most of these garages operates in poor working environment, where the operation area is not properly shielded from wind and dust; acknowledging the contribution of this important sector by youths in the County economy; further acknowledging that with well-organized automobile garages, youths operating in such garages may acquire funding more easily,  this Assembly urges the County Executive to develop a policy to regulate the establishment, management and operations of  automobile mechanic (Jua Kali) garages in the County to ensure quality and safety services by automobile artisans.
