Bungoma County elected leaders have been reminded to keep their manifestos in check and deliver on what they promised the locals.
Addressing the media at his home in Bungoma town, former MCA aspirant for Khalaba ward in Kanduyi Sub county Oscar Wamukota cautioned the elected leaders against squandering the money that is meant for development in the county.
He urged the leaders to put public funds in proper use for the betterment of the county and Kenya at large.
“I want to remind all the elected leaders all the way from the governor, the members of the parliament and those for the county assembly that 5 years is a short period of time and soon we shall be back on the ballot and those who will not have delivered to the people of Bungoma, more specifically Kanduyi Sub county and Khalaba ward, be rest assured that we will send you home,” he said.
Insecurity in Kanduyi
This is after the residents decried the rise of insecurity in different areas in Kanduyi and poor street lighting for the business people.
He went ahead to say that he will be on the lookout to remind them every now and then so that they deliver every single promise that they made to the people.
Bungoma Senatorial by-election
On By-election, Wamukota expressed his dissatisfaction at the turnout of the voters saying that it was so low and in future the residents should consider coming out to express their democratic right if given an opportunity and vote in leaders of their choice instead of ignoring only to lament when regret later.
The low turnout of voters was experienced during the Bungoma senatorial by election on 8th of December.
The Bungoma senate seat was declared vacant by the Independent Electoral Commission and Boundaries (IEBC) after the then elected Senator Moses Wetangula was voted in as the speaker of the national assembly.
