Governor Kaluki Ngilu has directed her urgent urge to the Members of the County Assembly of Kitui to hasten passing crucial County Bills tabled before the House without delay.Citing the pending supplementary budget at the Assembly Chambers, the Governor said further delays would lead to poor service delivery to the residents.
The County Boss was speaking during the Silver Jubilee celebrations of Father Benjamin Kavale at Mbondoni Catholic Church, in Mwingi West Sub County where she slammed the ward representatives for their delay in passing the Supplementary Budget.
“2022 is not far and the electorate will vote us out if we don’t use their money to deliver on our promises and bring development in our respective areas”, Ngilu directed to MCAs.
Ngilu added that this isn’t time for leadership squabbles or playing active party politics but it’s time for fulfillment of election pledges to the electorates to leave a trackable development record.She challenged the county legislators to consider realisation of their promises to secure their re-election in forthcoming polls.
To the local women, she urged them to turn up in large numbers to the county public participation destined locations so that they can air their priority projects to be done under the Community Level Infrastructure Development Projects (CLIDP) formula.
“I call on women to occupy the front seats and present your views fearlessly, for you are the ones who know what befits your community than the men” the Governor said.
On matters pertaining the previously frequent reported cases of early pregnancies during the past KCSE examination period countrywide, Ngilu called on parents to incorporate sexual issues into their daily conversations with their girls.The Governor lamented over the high number of child births and absenteeism registered while the national exam was in progress by the candidates at various centres.
“Don’t stop punishing your children if that’s what will instill discipline in them and make them stay focused in school,” Ngilu advised the parents.
