Residents of Kariobangi South were all smiles on Tuesday night after receiving news that they would soon have a new cabro road delivered to them in three weeks’ time.
Embakasi West MP Hon George Theuri made the announcement during a final public briefing meeting at Kariobangi South 56. He was accompanied to the function by Uhuru Kariobangi South MCA Hon Robert Mbatia.
The leaders promised to give priority to women and youth from the area during the hiring process, but asked those given an opportunity to stay away from alcohol during working hours.
“We shall not allow drunkards to be part of the team,” they said.
Area residents thanked the leaders for the initiative, saying it would bring an end to the inconvenience experienced especially during the rainy days.
The two leaders further said they would continue working together to deliver more projects in the constituency.
“We shall put together the resources we get from both ends of the national and county governments to give residents what they deserve.”
Mbatia asked residents to continue exercising patience even as the leaders lobbied for more funds for projects.
He said that the funds allocated to the constituency were not enough to meet its numerous demands and hoped that with time more projects would be realized.
This is the second such initiative the MP is unveiling barely a couple of days after he launched the construction of a cabro road in Umoja II ward on Sunday afternoon.
Work is already in progress at the site with bulldozers having been deployed for ground breaking.
Meanwhile, Theuri has asked parents to ensure that no child was left idling at home even if they experienced difficulties in raising school fees. He advised them to take advantage of bursaries issued by the national and county governments.
“The government will take serious action against parents who fail to take their children to school,” he said.
