Nakuru East residents fault their legislator for attacking Senator

12 August 2016, 16:39

Nakuru - Nakuru Town East MP David Gikaria has been asked by his constituents to render an apology for terming Senator James Mungai an ‘absentee leader’.

The Nakuru Town East residents claimed Gikaria had failed them and they hadn’t seen much to say on what he had done for them.

According to the residents,the legislator is aledgedly using government money to fund his personal projects and using his office to take over major contracts leaving other potential contractors with nothing.

“He has funded the construction of a private school with over Sh20 Million from the CDF kitty. His trucks are the ones used to transport materials to government projects in the county.”said one of the businessmen.

they defended Senator Mungai saying he had successfully lobbied for over 30 Billion shillings from the national government and if it had been misappropriated he can’t be blamed as he is not directly involved during spending.

The Nakuru East constituents  allegedly accused the legislator of building stalls on space reserved for roads in Flamingo Ward of his constituency and later establishing his own investments something they had long ignored.

“Gikaria is fighting the wrong person. We only see him supervising projects initiated by the county government and not by CDF.” said Mary Wangui, a Nakuru businesswoman.

She  added that the MP had withheld over 100,000 Shillings meant to pay a group of women who he called on to clean Nakuru Town ahead of Deputy President William Ruto's  visit to the town last year and their attempts to reach him were futile as they have been turned away at his gate for months.

The residents urged the legislator to stop meddling with other elected leaders tasks and rather focus on his constitutional role saying that he was instead answerable to the senator in the spending of the CDF kitty and not the reverse.

They called on him to come clear to them on what he had done with CDF funds as most projects were county-funded yet he had received millions from the national government for constituency development.

However when reached on Phone,the legislator termed the sentiments as mere talk by a few who had been paid to interfere with his political career.

He said he will proceed with his mandate of serving his Nakuru East Constituents without any compromise or interference from other sources.
