MCAs pile pressure on Governor Cleophas Lagat

By RAEL JELIMO | June 17th 2015

The assembly is piling pressure on the executive to deliver on its election pledges.

Over 15 MCAs who spoke to The Standard in Kapsabet pointed out stalled projects across the county, which they termed as an indication of failure by Governor Cleophas Lagat's administration.

They also raised concern over the county's failure to commence a number of projects it had budgeted for in the 2013-2014 and 2014-2015 financial years.

"The 2015 financial year is closing and projects, which had been budgeted for in 2013 are yet to start; some only have the foundation stone laid. Where is the money going?" posed Chemundu/Kapng'etuny MCA Joseph Too.

The governor, however, refuted claims that his administration was sleeping on the job, saying he was working round-the-clock to ensure all projects were completed before his term ends.

"Most projects are running on schedule and we are working round-the-clock to ensure completion of all projects by 2017," he said.

Chepterwai MCA Isaac Choge pointed out that the over Sh150 million early childhood development classroom project, which was budgeted for in the 2013-2014 financial year, was yet to start.
