Kenya: Mwingi North TNA Hopeful Accuses Kalonzo of Failing Development Test

The National Alliance party aspirant for Mwingi North parliamentary seat Japheth Ngonde has said area is poor, neglected and underdeveloped.

"The people of Mwingi North constituency have been represented right at the governmental level for 30 years, but there is little to show for it," Ngonde. "It is a very embarrassing situation."

The consultant accountant who practices in Nairobi said the people of Mwingi North have continue to suffer from lack of water, illiteracy, hunger, poor health, youth unemployment, insecurity and poor roads,

Ngonde said his bid is motivated by service to community. "Every time I travel to my rural home, I am met with poverty and misery. It's about time someone did something about it," said the aspirant.

In a press statement he issued yesterday, Ngonde said the myriad of problems facing the Mwingi North people will only be addressed, "if their nest MP is elected on a Jubilee coalition which will form the next government after March 4."

"The people of Mwingi North can only achieve their aspirations if their MP is in the Jubilee coalitions government. That's why I joined the TNA/URP/UDF formation."

He said the constituents are haunted by persistent food shortage, lack of water and poor road network which has made large parts of the constituency inaccessible.
