Murang’a residents decry poor development record

05 September 2016, 23:43 Joseph Njung’eh

Nairobi - A section of Mathioya constituency residents in Murang’a County have complained over unfinished development projects which they attributed to mismanagement of funds and poor leadership.

Speaking in Kiria-ini Market, the residents among them bodaboda operators decried poor road networks which they said has made access to interior parts difficult.

They claimed that during the time of their former MP the late John Joseph Kamotho, the region enjoyed speedy development and vowed to vet all individuals eyeing for the parliamentary seat to ensure the right candidate takes over.

“During the time of Kamotho, education and agricultural sectors were doing quite well but currently very minimal development projects are being implemented,” said one of the residents, Jane Kiiru.

She stressed that they will ensure only development oriented leaders are elected during next year’s general elections.

The residents accused the current Mathioya MP, Clement Wambugu, of poor utilization of the Constituency Development Funds (CDF), adding needy children were not supported to proceed with education.

They asked the second term MP to adequately support education of children from poor backgrounds.

In a rejoinder, MP Wambugu refuted claims that no development had been realized during his tenure.

Wambugu said that education standards had improved greatly since he was elected.

“I want to tell those who are eying for Mathioya parliamentary seat to stop tarnishing my projects and instead get their facts right because I know the development I have initiated in education and roads,” added Wambugu.

He observed that since he was elected, two roads within the constituency had been tarmacked and 600 primary schools renovated.

“Politics is competition and not insults and let those who have interest in my seat come up and we face the electorate who will make decision,” he stated.
