Operations at Kajiado West District headquarters in Maili 46 have been questioned by leaders after the area DCC chose to divide the number of appearances in office.
The area deputy county commissioner, William Kakimoi, works from Kisamis for two weeks and later moves to Maili 46 for the remaining weeks in a month.
That has drawn a debate among the local leaders on the suitability of Maili 46 town as the seat of the DCC.
Speaking during the burial of the late Meya Supeet ole Goligol in Keekonyokie ward, leaders led by deputy speaker and politician Joseph ole Simel claimed provision of services by the provincial administration is suspect.
“Those concerned with the leadership of the district should stop playing cards when our people are suffering. Kajiado West will not be served from Nairobi and that is why the DCC keeps shifting from here to there, “claimed Simel.
Kajiado county deputy speaker and aspirant for Kajiado West M.P’s seat, George Sunkuyia said the current leadership should do their work because the distance between the two locations in Keekonyokie and Iloodokilani is far.
“The DCC shifts after every two weeks and people are suffering, and the county government is not concerned. We want those concerned to stop playing games with our people,” claimed Sunkuyia.
But area MP Moses ole Sakuda said he is the one who is more concerned and that he knows what he is doing.
“I am the one is concerned as the area MP and I know what exactly what is going on. Why is it bothering you? Let me do what I think is necessary and right,” retorted Sakuda.
Sakuda said the people of Kisamis are enjoying the services of the DCC just like their counterparts in Maili 46,” said Sakuda.
The MP said plans are underway by the national government to divide Kajiado West into two and all the necessary cost of doing it will be factored in the in this year’s budget.
Kajiado Senator Peter Ole Mositet said the will not wait until September for the new DCC to be posted in the area.
“The budget will be effective from September and our people can’t wait until that time. Let us talk with Interior CS Joseph Nkaissery and ensure we get a new DCC in Kisamis,” suggested Mositet.
The late Goligol left behind a widow, 28 children and 78 grandchildren.
