Mbooni Constituency member of Parliament has said that the leaders committed to realize development for the lower Eastern region won’t be cowed to work with the Jubilee government.
Speaking at a function at Muiu area in Mbooni Constituency on Saturday, Hon Michael Kisoi reiterated his stand to work with the Uhuru Kenyatta – led government for the sake of his area of representation.
Mr Kisoi is among the MPs who defected from the Wiper party led by Kalonzo Musyoka during the launching of the newly formed Jubilee Party. Other MPs from Lower Eastern who joined JP include Hons Joe Mutambu( Mwingi Central), Richard Makenga( Kaiti), Regina Ndambuki( Kilome), John Munuve( Mwingi North), Vincent Musyoka( Mwala), Victor Munyaka( Machakos Town), Rachael Kaki( Kitui South), Francis Mwangangi ( Yatta) and Itwiku Mbai( Masinga).
The youthful legislator confirmed to the residents that the tendering process of the Kakuswi- Itangini road, the deadly Kalawa bridge is almost complete. He also confirmed that the government has already set aside the Ksh 300 millions for the establishment of KMTC Mbooni Campus amid cheers from the mammoth crowd.
Hon Kisoi said that he had consulted the electorates about working with the government, and that he was not walking alone in the journey towards bringing maendeleo to the people of Mbooni Constituency.
This comes at a time when the Akamba council of elders declared their stand to work with and support the Jubilee government for the same of the community. Ukambani region has being dilapidated development-wise due to self- deluding politics perpetrated by the leaders mandated to lead the community, majority of them being in the current opposition government.
‘It has not been easy working with the Jubilee government because we’ve been treated as adopted sons and daughters. Through the Jubilee government, I got a technical college, KMTC among other national government projects for my people. The County government has only 15% of the government’s expenditure while the National government controls 85% of the expenditure, thus we’ve to support the government to get a share of this to do projects in our regions’, said Kisoi.
