KNA Mavoko MP Patrick Makau has asked leaders to remain united and support one another in order to realize faster development in their respective areas.
Addressing residents at Kyumbi secondary school during the issuance of school bursary cheques, Makau said as leaders they ought to have unity of purpose instead of spending most of their time engaging in endless politicking that was not beneficial to the common mwananchi.
He reiterated that politicians ought to come together and enact laws that would enhance service delivery to the people.
“We must enact legislation that enables swift implementation of all the county projects providing services to the people like provision of water and construction of roads,” said Makau.
“Leaders should drill more boreholes to take care of water issues and construct roads before anything else,” he reiterated.
At the same time, the MP revealed that the National Treasury had allocated Sh600 million for the ongoing construction of Makadara Stadium in Athi river, Mavoko sub-county.
Also present at the ceremony was Mavoko Deputy OCS Inspector Moses Kuria who urged parents to be on the lookout for the safety of their children.
Kuria further sounded alarm over youths who get involved in drug abuse and other criminal activities that made them liable for conviction in a court of law.
“Drugs are a very big challenge around here, most of the youths are engaged in the vice. I urge parents to report any such issues to us, we have other ways of addressing drug addiction among the youths other than sending them to prison,” added the OCS.
The area Chief Joseph Musinga echoed similar sentiments, while urging the youths and others engaged in criminal activities to desist from such behaviours.
Musinga further reminded those who had received SMS to present themselves to the nearest Huduma office with their Identity cards and pick their Huduma Namba cards.
During the ceremony, bursaries worth Sh5 million were issued to secondary school and college students within the sub-county.
Among the beneficiaries was Kyumbi secondary school which was allocated Sh243, 000 to support 79 needy students, while 10 students from Mathatani secondary school were awarded Sh45, 000 each.
