As Kenyans anticipate the outcome of the petition filed by NASA disputing the outcome of the just concluded polls, elected leaders are already putting to task the Jubilee government to release funds for construction of the Misikhu-Brigadier road they promised during campaigns. Soysambu/Mitua ward MCA elect Stephen Wafula Wamalwa said the Jubilee government should prioritize the projects they promised especially in Bungoma County saying the residents are still optimistic.
He says during the leaders’ several visits in the County they assured residents of Tongaren and Webuye East constituencies that together with the County government they will ensure the road is constructed so as to ease transport activities for residents who are mostly farmers.
“Residents of Bungoma County voted for Jubilee government in large numbers than the last elections and now it is their turn to appreciate that by fulfilling their promises and uniting our country,” he said.
The MCA elect also called upon the Bungoma County government under the leadership of Governor-elect Wycliffe Wangamati to ensure the up the much-publicized maize miller at Brigadier market in his ward is up and running, saying it is unfortunate that since 2013 the project has not been initiated.
He said Kshs 80 million was allocated for the project but nothing has been developed at the site so far saying the newly elected County leadership should ascertain how the money was used.
Hon Stephen disclosed that most of the residents in Tongaren constituencies are maize farmers and have incurred loses due to middlemen who always buy their maize at a throwaway price and later sell at a higher price, citing that the miller would’ve really helped the farmers.
He further promised to help residents of Soysambu ward to access the NHIF cards so as to help them access medical care without incurring medical expenses saying many lives have been lost due to lack of money to access medical care.
Moreover, he assured the residents of Soysambu ward that he will perform his duties diligently and will not take part in corruption and other scandals that will hinder delivery of services to residents at the grass root level.
