National Assembly Speaker Kenneth Marende has said the Constituency Development Fund will stay in place after next year's general election.
The speaker said the kitty has been instrumental in the development of the country. "There have been talks of the kitty being abolished with the coming of devolved funds to county governments but I wish to assure Kenyans that the fund will remain intact," he said.
Marende was speaking in Nyatike constituency yesterday where he was hosted by MP Edick Anyanga during the official flagging off of four Sh18 million school buses funded by the kitty.
The kitty was started in 2006. The buses were handed over to Rabwao Secondary School, Bande Girls Secondary School, Kibuon Secondary School and Lwanda-Magwar Secondary schools.
