Malindi member of parliament Aisha Jumwa has donated 100 bags of cement, 300 pieces of iron sheets and 50 desks to Mangororo primary school in Ganze constituency, Kilifi County.
Ms Jumwa arrived in the school this afternoon where she addressed teachers and gathered residents.
She said the promised items will be in the school by tomorrow afternoon.
“This afternoon I paid a courtesy call to Mangororo Primary School on invitation of the area MP, Hon. Teddy Mwambire of Ganze Constituency where I donated 50 desks, 100 bags of cement and 300 pieces of iron sheets in aid of the school after photos of pupils sitting on bricks sub-merged in water went viral in social media yesterday.
I made a clarion call on all leaders, well-wishers and donors to come out and support the school and other initiatives that require collective responsibility.
I am focused on delivering development programs that unite and empower Kilifians. I also appealed to everyone to reject the politics of division and disunity that can derail our agenda in Kilifi County,” she said.
The photos which were circulated online showed some students sitting while others standing on bricks which were submerged on water due to the ongoing rains.
Ganze MP Teddy Mwambire took to social media to respond to criticism on his county saying: “I am trying my level best to mitigate such misgivings in the constituency even the resources available can’t meet an abrupt action.”
“It should be put in proper records that Ganze constituency is still struggling to get its projects allocations for the 2018/2019 financial year from the NG (National Government) – CDF (Constituency Development Fund) following some confusing realization from the previous regime. The NG – CDF has been asking us to utilize some funds meant to complete some projects from their records which are not on the ground.”
