Nakuru Deputy Governor David Kones today represented Governor Susan Kihika in the burial of John Ndung’u Njoroge the father to Juja MP George Koimburi in Kianjoya, Mau Narok Ward in Njoro Sub-county.
Kones remembered Ndung’u as a hardworking businessman who served as a good example saying his efforts will forever be etched in the lives of those who he came across.
On development in the area, Kones revealed that the county has elaborate plans to ensure roads and water projects are implemented saying the governor had the residents at heart.
“Our governor is well organized and I can tell you all these areas development will have developments,” said Kones.
The DG was accompanied by Kiambu Senator Karungo Thangwa, and MPs Martha Wangari (Gilgil), Samuel Gachobe (Subukia), Eric Wamumbi (Mathira), Simon Kingara (Ruiru), John Wanjiku (Kiambaa), Alice Ng’ang’a (Thika), Maina Karobia (EALA), Wamacukuru James (Kabete), Anne Wamuratha (Kiambu Women Rep), Wanjiru Mwangi (Nominated) and Mau Narok MCA Cyrus Dida.
The leaders responded to an array of issues including the Finance Bill which had elicited diverse opinions and the Shakahola mass deaths.
Thika MP Alice Ng’ang’a called on Kenyans to give the government time and allow the president to work for the people of Kenya.
“Those demanding food to come down must go to the farms and work, let us engage in the finance bill public participation. When taxes come our way when we have food we will not feel a pinch,” said Ng’ang’a.
Gatundu South MP Gabriel Kagombe said the president must be given time to work including bringing the cost of living down through focusing on food production.
“The opposition is working very hard to politicize everything, our president has nothing to hide, we will find a way to work around the finance bill and get a solution,” said Kagombe.
Mathira MP Eric Wamumbi weighed in on the Shakahola matter saying the church should not be victimized, however, saying they must self-regulate to avoid such incidences in the future.
He at the same time defended the president on the finance bill saying Parliament should not be a rubber stamp but rather do its due diligence by ensuring they scrutinize and make a sober decision on the bill.
Murang’a Women Rep Betty Maina said the country is tired of wanton corruption applauding the president for the recent suspension of office holders indicted with graft.
Subukia MP Samuel Gachobe weighed in saying the government needed time to be able to work by stabilizing the economy.
Gilgil MP Martha Wangari lauded locals for maintaining peace throughout the election cycle adding that Kenyans need their leaders to work for them.
