MCA says Wanjiku should read BBI document prior to implementation

A member of the Kiambu County assembly (MCA)  has called for the Building Bridges Inititative( BBI) document to be returned to wananchi at the grassroot to endorse  the recoomendations before implementation.

The Kahawa Wendani Member of County Assembly (MCA)  Mr. Cyrus Omondi the document should be taken to the people for ratification prior to implementation to enhance ownership.

The MCA spoke during the Kiambu County celebrations for World Aids Day at Kahawa Wendani yesterday, praised development plan outlined by BBI proposal and added the proposals will bring tangible development in the counties in sectors overlooked by the Members of Parliament and govenors because of misplaced priorities..

“ The recommendation of the BBI is that development funds be devolved to the ward level and this is the only way the citizens will recognize the strides  of development in their neighbourhoods as they will identify priority areas that affect them most.”

By devolving the funds to the wards, it is the best proposal in the BBI document as the people will directly be involved in prioritising projects which will benefit them all round and at the same time alleviate suffering and address under development.

On the proposal by a section of Mt. Kenya leaders that the document be debated in parliament, Mr. Omondi said MPs are known to be driven by parochial interests and added that for better implementation, it was necessary that the report is taken back to the people to validate through a referendum.

During the celebrations to mark the County world Aids Day, Mr.Omondi pleaded with the Deputy Governor Dr.James Nyoro to help construct an  Early Childhood Development Centre (ECD) at Kahawa wendani primary school to reduce the  long distances in search of education.
