MP Disburses CDF cheques

By Dennis Kipkirui

Laikipia West MP Nderitu Mureithi  presented Constituency Development Fund (CDF) cheques worth Ksh.2.6 milion to various institutions in a low key public rally held in Sipili market. The rally held in the morning hours saw a poor turn out from the members of the public with many evidently engaging themselves in various activities within the centre and ignoring the much hyped rally.Earlier, a vehicle with government registration had gone round the centre announcing the coming of the MP.

Among the beneficiaries include Bondeni primary school which Laikipia Lural Voices(LRV) has over time highlighted the woes that has characterized the school. The school was given a cheque worth Ksh.500,000. Others are Sipili school for the Deaf which got a paltry Ksh.250,000.Wangwaci primary school went home with Ksh.500,000 while Kio day secondary school got Ksh. 400,000. Administration Police  got a lion share of Ksh.800,000.

The area MP who is also an assistant minister for Industrilisation urged residents to be cautious of those questioning his development record. He pleaded with the residents to elect him to enable him complete the projects he had started in the area.The event was however, not short of drama when some youths jeered the MP and told him off.They shouted at him to desist from dishing handouts and instead address the perrenial road problem between Kinamba and Sipili. The 8km stretch has been a nightmare for residents travelling out of Sipili to Nyahururu. The MP promised to address the issue as soon as possible.

Those interviewed by LRV were wary of the frequent visits made by the MP to Sipili during the electioneering period. They were quick to point out that the minister  has been away for a long time and now has began to make forays to the area in a bid to convince residents to vote for him. Nderitu is vying for the post of Senator in Laikipia County. 

The MP later opened United Democratic Front office (UDF) in Sipili market. He was accompanied by various aspirants to different posts.
