Speaking while inspecting various projects initiated through the NG-CDF kitty, Wainaina said it is unfortunate some Government offices are in dilapidated condition vowing to seek funds from development partners to rehabilitate them.

The legislator said Chiefs and their Assistants have been neglected and can’t therefore offer quality services to the locals.

“It is very disheartening and shameful to see Chiefs operating from such structures. I will strive to use the NG-CDF allocation to build better offices and learning Institutions for them and for our children.” He said.

He said the working conditions are deplorable and one of the reason why the administrators are demoralized.

“How do you expect to get quality services from a Chief who works from a mud office? It’s very sad.” he said.

Wainaina urged residents to shun leaders engaging in populist and retrogressive politics saying his desire is to leave a legacy especially because he was elected as an independent candidate.

In total the location has received Ksh 2.5m for development, and Ngoliba Chief Alice Kago couldn’t hide her joy saying the new office will also host the Assistant County Commissioner.
