Frosty relations among County leaders hurting service delivery

12 June 2015, 10:23 Jose Mwanake

Mombasa - The frosty relationship between elected leaders in Mombasa is hurting service delivery and development projects in the County, a lobby group has said.

The perceived bad blood between Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho and Likoni MP Masuod Mwahima has been cited as the reason behind the poor health facilities within the wider Likoni constituency.

Aid Kenya Foundation executive director, Armstrong Ongera said the health sector woes afflicting Likoni constituency boil down to political differences between the two leaders who are not in cordial terms.

“The petty rivalry between elected leaders is hurting the Likoni’s healthcare sector, and if the feuding parties fail to resolve their differences, it is the electorates who will continue to suffer,” Ongera said.

The NGO official was speaking during a tour of the Mrima Health Centre on Tuesday, which he revealed caters for almost 60 000 residents despite the facility being in a sorry state.

He said donors are interested in funding the Mrima Health Centre to the tune of KES 100 million yet it is proving to be an uphill task as leaders are not willing to work together in the rehabilitation.

He said that donors and NGOs are finding it difficult to operate within the environment as local leaders are not able to work together.

“Leaders need to put aside their differences for the benefit of the locals, to facilitate for development and aid projects to take off without obstacles that come by from political egos,” said Ongera.

Likoni Constituency Development Fund (CDF) trustee, Evan Momanyi acknowledged that healthcare within the area needs to improve especially in the wake of cholera outbreak in the region.

“Infrastructure, medical supplies and healthcare personnel are areas that need to be urgently addressed by the political leaders who have a say in healthcare reforms in Likoni,” Momanyi said.
