Residents of Ngecha in Limuru yesterday asked the government to take legal action against their councillor whom they are accusing of misusing funds allocated to three roads in the area.
The residents said since the last general elections, they have not seen the councilor. They claimed that Wamai Kironji was allocated Sh700, 000 by theKiambu County Council during the last financial year but he only used quarter of the money to repair the roads.
The residents said the councillor only brought three lorries of sand to one of the roads and pocketed the rest of the money meant for the repair of Kamuri Road, Waruru Farm Road and other short roads.
They claimed that he has never attended public barazas and alleged that he has been involved of grabbing and selling council plots, with the most recent being a Juakali plot which had been grabbed. The plot was returned back to the artisans by the area MP, Peter Mwathi. Mwathi said the councilor should be made to answer the allegations and if found guilty be prosecuted.
Meanwhile, the MP said Ngecha, which is known as an artist's village will soon get a polytechnic for the youth to enroll for technical courses. They were speaking during a constituency baraza organised by the Limuru Constituency Development Fund. Said a resident, "we are angry that we do not see our councilor and we do not know his whereabouts.
He has been misusing our public funds with the allocation of Sh700, 000 only used to repair a short road with only three Lorries of sand having been used with the roads."
