From left to right Gichugu MP Gichimu Githinji, his Mwea counterpart Kabinga Wachira and the Kirinyaga Central colleague Munene Wambugu addressing the media ouside Kiamachiri Anglican Church within Kagio town this afternoon after attending a Sunday Service.

Elected leaders  who  are fond of finding faults in the government  to start criticizing it should resign and join the opposition to avoid double speak and conflicts of interest.

Mwea MP Kabinga Wachira said such leaders were keenly waiting to count the faults the school opening will have tomorrow to start making a political capital out of such misfortunes.

He said schools having remained for more than nine months will certainly have some challenges reopening tomorrow but  leaders should come up  with solutions and not unwarranted criticism.

Speaking to the Media  at Kiamachiri  Anglican church   in his  constituency after attending a Sunday  service the   first time legislator urged such leaders still in the government  to  quit at this earliest opportunity instead of causing unnecessary rifts.

The magnificent Kiamachiri Anglican church within Kagio town ,Mwea where Legislators Kabinga Wachira , Gichimu Giythinji and Munene Wambugu worshipped this morning.

“ With the country still reeling from the negative effects  caused into all the sectors by the corona  pandemic  it was expected that leaders worth  being holders  of elective positions should move in one direction in support of the many efforts  the government was making to put the nation back on its feet, “he said.

Accompanied by his Gichugu and Kirinyaga Central counterparts Gichimu Githinji and Munene Wambugu respectively   , Wachira      thanked the government for embarking on project s in his area worth Sh  50 billion .

“Some  of these projects include tarmacking of various roads, the KEMRI , Thiba dam  as well as the irrigation canals to connect the    irrigation water  to  20,000 new hectares for  rice  production ,”he said.

He said with president Uhuru’s ten year term of office coming to and next year ,there was going to be a big scramble for resources and leaders who will not have organised themselves   properly stand to lose.

“This  year Kenyans will see jostling and scramble  for resources like never before and those who have already shown open bias and unwarranted criticism set to lose  a share of the  national cake ,” the MP said.

Wambugu on the other hand said   there was urgent need for all elected leaders from the county to forge a united front which would enable  them deliver on their pre-election  promise in 2017.

He said it was  only through such unity their development  agenda could be  addressed by the government which  funds projects in their respective areas.

Wambugu said the unity between him ,Wachira and Githinji had brought about rapid development in the entire  county.

“We always   go to lobby for projects meant to benefit our people as one united team   and as  you are aware,  this year many roads have been earmarked for tarmacking  in Mwea   and Gichugu to make them look like my  area which has the longest tarmac connectivity in the county ,”he said.

He also said the government had supplied some 5000 desks various schools in his constituency as reopening tomorrow.

Githinji  on his part said he could not tell  for sure if any such desks had been supplied to schools  in his area .

“But like my colleague Wachira has said I will be moving   around   the constituency tomorrow  to ascertain first hand any problems teachers might be experiencing    due to the covid -19  protocols  prescribed by the government ,”he said.

The three also agreed there was urgent need to create one more constituency in the densely populated Mwea  while  the  county had five sub- counties   with four constituencies.

“Mwea has  a population of 237,000 residents and only allocated Sh 100 million for the CDF  while other   constituencies with only about 40,000 residents  receive the same amount making which results to inequitable distribution of the national resources, “Wachira  noted.
