Kigumo MP to launch his gubernatorial manifesto soon
Kigumo MP Jamleck Kamau has announced that he will vie for Murang’a gubernatorial seat come 2017 to help provide alternative leadership to the local people.
Kamau said his development record since election as Kigumo MP speaks for him as an experienced politician out to champion social and economical development in every part of the county.
Kamau who was addressing a congregation at Wahamiga ACK church , castigated the current county government led by Mwangi wa Iria for perpetrating corruption denying local residents crucial services.
He accused Wa Iria of riding on other peoples’ development projects to gain political mileage.
He further said that most of projects the governor is bragging of initiating were started by former legislators under the CDF concept.
“It’s shameful to see our county being ranked among the most corrupt in the country and we wonder how sh. 20 billion has been used since the onset the devolution constitutional provision in 2013,” said the Kigumo legislator.
Mr. Kamau also accused the governor of engaging in insults citing a recent incident where the governor referred to Kigumo residents as fools for electing him as MP twice yet he has no development record which the governor later denied.
The MP wondered why the county government opted to rent the building that houses the recently launched Kenneth Matiba Eye and Dental Hospital claiming that the money used to renovate and rent the building was enough to build a new hospital altogether .
“Although the move to establish a specialized hospital is good, it was not economical for the county government to rent the premises.
The MP said the county would have constructed a new hospital to avoid payment of monthly rent which is hefty,” he observed.
Meanwhile Kamau has dared all Cord principals to take their own children to participate in their Monday protests if they are really sensitive to their plight.
He said the opposition is just creating unnecessary mayhem through the protests saying the President has no power to send the IEBC commissioners packing.
“I warned the Cord co-principal Raila Odinga to shun from disturbing the Jubilee government and engage in mature politics,” said Kamau.
