We are bold in presenting our news as we move to all Maa counties across the country.

An MP has questioned a Kajiado leaders’ trip to Mombasa while the county is crawling from devastating effects of on-going drought.

Kajiado Central MP, Kanchori Memusi, on Monday evening in a text message, said having a meeting in Mombasa was not “necessary” especially now during “this difficult time” when the electorate are faced with starvation.

“The people who elected us are faced with a myriad of problems ranging from hunger, death of their livestock, acute shortage of water and unending human/wildlife conflicts on top of school fees,” said Memusi.

The MP however said governor Joseph Lenku and his team of county executive committee members, chief officers, selected MCAs and MPs should make public issues they discussed and what they resolved to do for the people of Kajiado so that the electorate can judge them on how their money was spent.

“Schools’ opening is also a challenge with many of our people turning to leaders for help, only for them to be told that your elected leaders are in Mombasa, I don’t think that would go down well,” said the MP.

During the Mombasa conference, Lenku formed three working groups that will brainstorm on key development issues and challenges. The issues are: Water/food security and education; physical planning/urbanization and infrastructure, healthcare, human/wildlife conflict and conservation.

The meeting at Baobab Hotel was attended by MPs; Peris Tobiko, Joseph Manje, Philip Mpaayei, Janet Teyiaa, county speaker Johnson Osoi, Lenku’s entire cabinet and section of MCAs.It was a three-day trip that started from Friday last week to Monday.

The governor was accompanied by his team of pressmen. No official statement has been received from the governor’s office regarding the cost incurred for the hire of planes and catering for the entire team at a five-star hotel in Mombasa.

Kajiado people on social media also questioned the rationale of the trip claiming the county has spacious hotels in Amboseli national park which can provide convenient rooms for conferences. They also shared photos of MCAs taken airborne in a Jumbo flight to Mombasa.
