Bumula MP Moses Mwambu Mabonga has called upon contractors in charge of different development projects in the constituency to deliver quality work or else they may not be paid.

In his address to residents at Mabusi after officially opening a chief’s office funded by the National Government Constituency Development Fund, the MP said he will not condone any poor work from contractors saying they have to deliver quality work.

He said the projects have been awarded to different contractors to foster competition and brushed off hearsays that he has awarded the contracts to a few individuals known to him saying even some of them were his political competitors during elections.

“While we encourage competition among the contractors, I want to send a warning to them that they have to ensure they deliver quality work in the end and anyone who will do contrary to that won’t be paid. Those who’ve done well may end up getting other tenders,” he said.

Mwambu also assured the residents who have been enlisted under the house upgrading program, that the project will start soon, saying he is still sorting out the issue of village headmen and brokers who went round soliciting for money from some residents.

On political matters, the Bumula MP encouraged leaders from the entire Western region to consider coming together, saying it’s the only way of solidifying their base ahead of the 2022 general election.

He expressed his concern that the Luhya nation was once the second richest at independence and it is unfortunate that now they’ve been overtaken by other tribes that have done things differently saying it is time to change the script.
