Webuye West MP Dan Wanyama has warned rogue and under performing contractors working in the constituency, saying their days are numbered. Addressing parents and residents at Makhonge primary school, the MP said he won’t tolerate the contractors who do a shoddy job, “I’ll not tolerate contractors who do subpar jobs,” he said.

Wanyama further used one particular contractor as an example, “A good example is the contractor who was tasked with overseeing the construction of Bunjosi dispensary, a lot of money was allocated to set up that dispensary but the contractor failed and I called for hiss arrest but people complained about the idea,” he said.

The Webuye West MP said it’s his wish to give contracts to residents but most of them are incapable and do a poor work, adding that they don’t want to be advised. He presented a Kshs 4 million cheque and a further Kshs 500, to Makhonge Primary School to cater for the construction of classrooms and desks’ repair after violent winds and heavy rains wrecked havoc.

On issues politics, the Webuye West legislator said it will be tough for the Luhya community to field a presidential candidate in the 2022 race, saying it won’t be the right time, as there are few decisive seats occupied by Luhyas in the top echelons of the government, which is a decisive weapon. He said the only way for Luhyas to ascend to power is to support Deputy President William Ruto, and after his tenure, Luhyas will have set up a strong enough structure to support themselves.

Moreover, he criticized ODM leader Raila Odinga for humiliating Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula, and faulted the election of his brother Oburu Odinga to EALA, “How can you support your brother who is old to go to EALA? Does it mean we have no youths in the nation, even from his own backyard?” he posed.
Area MCA Milly Masungo was also present and she urged youths to set up companies so that they can benefit from the government. She told the Webuye West MP to make sure the youths can supply building material and labor. She presented a Kshs 1 million cheque from the County government to the school and asked residents of Misikhu and Webuye West at large to support all elected leaders regardless of their political affiliations so that development can be realized.
