Trans Nzoia senator Henry Ole Ndiema has lamented over corruption that is being perpetuated by some county officials.
While addressing residents of Kwanza Constituency senator Henry Ole Ndiema said the county government led by Governor Patrick Khaemba is loosing millions of shillings on shoddy road projects that still remain incomplete despite the contractors being paid.
He wondered why money set for specific projects go missing and those involved get away with it without being apprehended in the court of law.
Trans Nzoia County being the breadbasket of this country, senator Ole Ndiema was not happy with how farming is dwindling in the county saying that most farmers are experiencing drying up of maize crops in their farms as a result of the subsidized fertilizer issued to them by the national government.
Ole Ndiema said he will take up the matter at the senate parliament so that all those affected should be compensated.
On the other hand Trans Nzoia legislator Janet Nangabo accused certain primary school head teachers for not embracing the governments’ initiative to give free education to all children in primary public schools by sending the children home to bring money.
Nangabo advised Kenyans to live in peace and not to be divided on political and ethnicity backgrounds saying that elections come and go but what is more important is how Kenyans relate in bettering this country.
Also present was Kwanza member of parliament Ferdinard Wanyonyi who complained about lorries carrying sand for construction from Kanyarakwat for damaging roads in his constituency.
He said it is high time they put strict measures to prevent further damages to roads.
John Likovere who is the member of the county assembly for Kwanza ward called on the national government to resettle all IDPS who are now pitching camp in Maridadi.
Likovere said they (IDP’s) are facing unbearable conditions as they lack food and other basic needs.
At the same time, the MCA asked the county government to issue title deeds to all Kwanza residents who own pieces of land at the market.
He said the move will motivate them to develop more hence boost the economy of the county.
