Kieni MP Kanini Kega who has been vocal against the push by CORD to amend the constitution through a referendum found himself being ashamed by constituents who took to the streets to protest against his endless politicking at the expense of serving his constituents.
The demonstrators claim they only see Mheshimiwa Kega on TV discussing irrelevant issues yet more pressing concerns await him on the ground. They also accuse the MP for being inaccessible.
At the centre of their agitation is an impassable road which a local contractor has done a shoddy job on.
“The road is completely impassable and we have incurred staggering losses because we cannot get our produce to the market on time,” complained a constituent who is a farmer.
Kega claims the money allocated to the road is not enough and he will push for more allocation come next financial year. The irony is that part of the push by governors is to increase the funds being sent to such activities as constructing roads. Essentially, Kega is opposed to a road in his constituency being improved as he worships the national government cheap propaganda against referendum.
When your constituents still demonstrate and picket along impassable roads, you have no business being a ‘news anchor’ in TV instead of pushing for more funds and quality work to get to your electorates.
