MP accuses govt officers of selling relief food

07 January 2015, 18:04 Magdaline Mwaniki

Nakuru - Njoro MP Joseph Kiuna has accused some government officials in Nakuru county of selling relief food meant to be distributed to the less fortunate in his constituency.

He said the government had released enough relief food in Njoro but the corrupt officials sold the food instead of giving to the poor.

“Government officials are entrusted to serve the public, but it is unfortunate if they can retain relief food meant for hunger stricken people for business,” said Kiuna.

The region is experiencing food shortage after Maize Lethal Necrosis Disease (MLND) hitch that resulted to low production.

The legislator called on the government to investigate the unscrupulous officers who sold the food at the expense of starving residents.

Lare Division Chief Ezekiel Omboti urged the  government to commence feeding programme in the region when schools open for first term to avoid absenteeism and school drop out due to lack of food.

The farmers were challenged to grow crops like sorghum, yams, and arrow roots to act as alternatives.

“We have several schools and their operations can be affected if the feeding programme does not commence as the pupils and students will be going to search for food,” he said.
