Kanduyi MP Wafula Wamunyinyi has called on the government to make sure local residents are prioritized in the Kshs 1.9 billion school desks project. Addressing residents in Webuye West, Wamunyinyi lauded the move by the national government to come up with the desks project, which will be handled by local Jua Kali artisans in light of the Covid-19 economic recovery.
He urged the government through the County commissioners to fast track the process and also make sure local youths in their areas benefit from the project. The MP also urged the County and national governments to utilize the money set aside for leaders’ travel expenses to support infrastructural development in schools. “We had set aside money to cater for travel costs for the President, deputy President and their teams, also, for the Governors, members of Parliament and Senate and MCAs. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, no one travelled, so let the government send the money to schools to support development and also to pay workers and board teachers,” he stated.
On Ford Kenya party politics, Wamunyinyi insisted he is the party leader, noting that he’s ready to work with everyone in the party and asked those who had run away from the party due to bad leadership to come back. He was quick to add that there will be no nomination ticket sales as had allegedly been before, citing that as a factor that had kept people away from the party.
