Bumula MP Moses Mwambu Mabonga has said he’ll be seeking intervention to have the National Government’s Constituency Development fund distributed according to the number of residents in a constituency.

In his address to residents of his constituency after distributing bursary cheques to over two thousand students drawn from high schools, middle-level colleges and universities, Mwambu said it is unfair that constituencies such as his with seven wards can be given theĀ same amount like other constituencies like Sirisia that has only three.

Mwambu said he’ll follow the right channels to seek intervention so as to ensure such constituencies have a higher allocation given that the residents at the grass root level are eager to know how much they are benefitting after electing their leaders.

He assured education stakeholders in his constituency of delivering on his promises of ensuring the learning environment is conducive and schools are well constructed, saying many of them currently don’t perform well because of the poor environment they are subjected to.

However, he cautioned those who’ll benefit from the disbursement against embezzling the funds saying he will be keen to monitor the projects and also sensitized them to apply for the infrastructure funds from the Ministry of Education saying it will help boost the projects.

On mattersĀ politics, he called upon leaders from Western Kenya to be set aside their pride in their quest for a united front saying it will play a great role in determining the portion of Western Kenya in the year 2022.

He said it’s been tough for him to even point out which leader has genuine interests, adding that unity has to stand out so that other communities can respect the leaders and what they say and stand for.
