I fulfilled my pledges, says Kuttuny

Former Cherangany MP Joshua Kuttuny has reacted bitterly on claims by his predecessor that he tainted the constituency’s image.
Kuttuny has asked the newly elected MP Wesley Korir to respect him as he pioneered policies that propelled the constituency economy to a higher level.
Kuttuny said that Wesley dirtied his public image during last week's interview on local TV when he said that Kenyans had wrong insights on Cherangany because the MP misrepresented the constituency by putting his interest first.
“My record speaks for itself as I constructed 19 new secondary schools using CDF; I supported rural electrification programme, constructed an administration office that is going to be commissioned by the president elect Uhuru Kenyatta as soon as he resumes office,” Kuttuny said.
He also pointed out that he constructed many roads in the area enabling dairy farmers in the area to supply their produce to the market in time.
Kuttuny added that Wesley misinformed the public when he said that the constituency had impenetrable roads.
"I struggled a lot to ensure that tarmacking of Kitale - Sibanga road was completed. It is now the only tarmacked road in the county," added Kuttuny.
Last year, the tax payers association rated the constituency as the second best in Rift valley in relation to funds management.
He urged the newly elected MP to concentrate on fulfilling his promises to the electorate instead of attacking him.
“Some parents are complaining because he has not fulfilled his pledges to pay fees and support youth projects by donating 1 000 motorbikes immediately he was elected,” noted Kuttuny.
He further proved false Wesley’s claims that in past five years, there was no unity in the area saying that he involved all communities in the management of the constituency resources.
Kuttuny is said to have been assured of a position in government as he played a big role in helping the Jubilee coalition gather more than more than 24 000 votes in the constituency.
