Wambui urges governors to shelve complaints

29 July 2013, 18:16 Wangui Joseph

Governors should first utilize the funds allocated by the central government before asking for more, Othaya MP Mary Wambui said over the weekend.

Wambui said governors have been complaining that the funds allocated to counties are not enough yet they have not fully exploited it.

Governors, she said, have powers to protect public utilities and resources and urged them to use them to generate more revenue in their respective counties instead of lodging complaints.

She argued that a lot of public resources are laying idle yet could generate more income if well used by the county leaders.

The MP was speaking at Othaya town after handing over cheques worth KES 2 Million to 13 groups of women and youth.

Wambui said the aim of supporting the groups financially was to empower them economically and facilitate growth of their existing projects since they had shown interest on economic development.

She advised them to initiate more income generating projects to benefit themselves and improve livelihoods.

She suggested that if more economic projects were introduced in the area, employment opportunities would crop and enhance the Poverty Eradication Programme that was introduced by former President Mwai Kibaki.

The MP further advised them to venture into various activities including bee and poultry keeping in a bid to improve their economic status.
