“I am in support of the bill. Why should somebody who is in his right senses defile or impregnate a girl who is disabled?” Nyamita said.

The lawmaker urged people living with disability to register groups to benefit from the allocations given to minority groups.

“We want PLWD to be in group so that they get tenders from the county government,” Nyamita said.
