Kirinyaga Central MP Gachoki Gitari has named and shamed  a n alleged Kerugoya  town drug trader  and threatened to go for him  single handedly .

Gitari told the said drug dealer he was not afraid of any consequence since the illicit trade was ruing the lives of many youths in the area.

“Am putting you (name  withheld) on notice  that unless you  stop immediately engaging yourself in this illicit and  dangerous       business which has left most of our children reduced into cabbage ,I will be coming for you personally and  of course you know the dire consequences you will face ,”the UDA legislator warned.

He wondered why the police  who are fully aware of this drug  king pin  were hesitant  to arrests and arraign him in court  yet his modus operadi was well  known by the law enforcers .

“It was only two weeks ago we conducted  a raid on bhangi (cannabis Sativa ) traffickers and retailers  at Kiamutuira village with the area provincial  administration and netted several kilos of the hard substance  and I wonder  where the police were for this illegal  trade t have reached this alarming proportion ,”he said

Gitari was addressing parents and guardians of school  children when he disbursed Sh 47 million worth of bursary to the needy   students   at the local CDF offices within Kerugoya town .

He said over 8000 children had benefitted from the fund and assured  the locals of his continued support to all educational matters .

The  Legislator also cautioned the Kirinyaga County Assembly  to desist  from squabbling and instead focus on  delivering the pre-election pledges the MCA made to Wanjiku.

He was reacting  to a recent incident where MCAs  Eric Muchina ,Kinyua  Wangui ,Moses  Migwi and David Mathenge were  removed from various  Assembly  sectoral committees for allegedly being disrespectful  to the colleagues.

The concerned MCAs have since vowed to continue pointing out at every shortcoming  they find within the County Executive since their primary duty is to oversight it (executive ).

The  same matter was raised before the Deputy President Rigathi  Gachagua when he graced the Kianyaga Old boys Associating meeting last week end .

But the area Deputy Governor Wachira Githanda  who was present downplayed the  matter and told Gachagua  the Assembly Speaker would  certainly resolve  it.
