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.
