MPs fault court ruling on CDF

23 February 2015, 15:06 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - Members of parliament have faulted a court ruling that declared Constituency Development Fund (CDF) kitty unconstitutional.

The MPs said the reasoning behind the ruling is flawed and unrealistic.

MPs Peter Weru (Mathira) and Kanini Kega (Kieni) said CDF has assisted in getting tangible and sustainable development in the country and has helped with a lot of emerging issues in the community.

“CDF has been playing a crucial role in helping the poor access social services that they could not have afforded, besides putting up crucial infrastructure,” said the MPs during a press conference at Nyeri Golf Club.

They vowed to fight the ruling by amending the constitution in order to retain the fund, reasoning that the kitty has enabled the establishment of projects that have changed and improved living standards of Kenyans.

“There must be a kitty to spur development in the constituencies because we cannot let County governments deal with everything. County governments are committing very little to development with others even giving out 1 percent of their total budget to development while CDF dedicates 95 percent to development,” said the MPs.

They observed that the kitty has been providing the most immediate interventions whenever there were problems in communities.
