Masinga sub-county people have been asked to guard development projects to avoid cases of destruction. Destruction in other words can be termed as misuse of tax payers money.
Masinga politician Lawrence Maingi addressed the residents following solar panels theft. The solar panels had been installed on a borehole belonging to Inyanzaa Primary School in Kivaa.
Prior investigations indicate that they were stolen by unknown people on Wednesday night.
Addressing journalists, Maingi stated that this borehole aide students In the school as well as more than 100 households.
He expressed his sadness that such a big project can go down the drain because of a few unscrupulous people who are not development-minded.
“I received a call this morning from the school principal Dorcas Muindi who told me the solar panels had been stolen. It’s sad because the project cost a lot of money,” he said.
“We urge mwananchi to wake up and protect what belongs to them as it is very disheartening to donate such big projects and see them go down the drain. The community must shield them with a zeal otherwise no one will be donating more projects,” he added.
Maingi cautioned the culprits promising them that their days are numbered and that the long arm of the law will soon catch up with them.
“Those involved and being used must know their days are numbered and will be arrested and charged very soon. The law doesn’t respect economic saboteurs,” Maingi said.
Additionally, he called upon all leaders in the area to embrace development projects without considering who initiated them.
“They should shun the notion that development must only come from them,” he said.
The borehole was sunk courtesy of donors from the Water is Life trust in March this year.
