Turbo MP Elisha Busienei has hit out at Uasin Gishu County Governor Jackson Mandago over failure to fulfill his political pledges.
Speaking to a vernacular radio station on Wednesday evening Busienei said Governor Mandago was only engaging in what he termed cheap politics.
He said Mandago has forgotten his obligations of ensuring that proper services are provided to the residents of Uasin Gishu County. Busienei said the residents were yearning to reap the fruits of devolution but so far nothing was coming forth.
He said despite the funds being allocated,the County’s Development record had not yet been felt. The MP said residents are still suffering under the same dilapidated schools, poor road network and other harsh conditions.
Busienei dismissed allegations that he was behind the recent move by MCA’s to impeach County Executives.He said it is the duty of County Assembly Leaders to champion for residents’ rights and ensure essential services are offered.
Busienei also lamented that Governor Mandago had sidelined Turbo Constituency saying no one from Turbo was appointed as County Minister. He further asked Governor Mandago not to punish the people of Turbo over their own political differences adding that Mandago was not consulting Members of Parliament from the County when it comes to development.
