The member of parliament for Kibwezi West Constituency Hon. Mwengi Mutuse has hailed the National Government’s Constituency Development Fund NG-CDF terming it phenomenal and a people’s fund.

‘As a member of the special funds joint parliamentary ad hoc committee formed to, among others, entrench NG-CDF in the Constitution, we are committed to safeguard NG-CDF and other grassroots funds so that they are not perennially precarious due to endless court challenges.”

“In Kibwezi West, the NG- CDF committee are currently conducting public participation to identify priority projects. The turn out in the meetings is very huge.

This confirms the centrality of CDF in propelling development at the grassroots.

Students from poor backgrounds who completed their class 8 studies have hope of transiting to secondary schools. We shall issue secondary school bursaries at polling station level while students in colleges and universities will apply through an online system. The biggest chunk of the NG- CDF allocation will go bursaries and building laboratories for Junior secondary schools.”

Hon. Mutuse added:

“As MP, I will robustly play my role of representation to make sure funds are applied only to projects identified by the people and that have maximum impact ti their lives. I will also make sure locals feel the socio- economic impact engaged in the procurement and other processes. Similarly, I will also play my oversight role to make ensure accountability and value for money.”
