You must change with times- chiefs told
Kirinyaga Central MP Gachoki Gitari speaking to the media when he met Chiefs and their Assistants from the area where he declared forgiving the administrators for their deliberate political war during last year's general elections on orders from the government of the day
Members of the provincial administration (chiefs and their assistants), must change with times or else risk being isolated by the government of the day.
Kirinyaga Central MP Gachoki Gitari while sounding the warning told those who were used by the Jubilee administration to frustrate his political campaigns should forget the past and move on .
The UDA Legislator said he personally knew those who were at the forefront to sabotage his campaigns he had since forgiven them since they were all serving the same Wananchi .
“Although I know by names all the Chiefs and their Assistants who were collectively opposed to my candidature for the parliamentary seat due to my political affiliation ,I have since forgiven them and they should do the same so that we can move forward as one team which serves Wanjiku ,” he stressed .
At a media briefing after meeting with the administrators at the area CDF offices in Kerugoya town , the Legislator blamed a former powerful and senior Civil Servant from the area for having brainwashed them into believing that the Azimio party was the incoming government .
“Since what the said former powerful civil servant is no longer in the government after the side he fully supported lost during the August 9 last year you (chiefs), must now make an about turn and join hands with us and serve all without any bias , “Gitari said.
At the same time Gitari has said there was urgent need to ensure bursary fund was equitably distributed to the needy children .
He advised those charged with the administration of the fund to ensure no child received more than one allocation as has been the case .
Added the Legislator “ there has been instances where a child received four bursary funds from various sources within the county thereby denying other needy ones the benefit and am now urging for thorough scrutiny of the list and names of the beneficiaries to avoid duplication,”.
Area Deputy County Commissioner Daniel Ndege who was present said so far a total of 6000 farmers had registered themselves in order to benefit from the government subsidized fertilizer program .
He asked those yet to register to do so urgently to avoid last minute rush as has been witnessed in other instances where deadlines must be met .
