Kanduyi Mp Wafula Wamunyinyi has released Sh20 million National Government-Constituency Development Fund to bright and needy students.
Each of the 3,000 applicants will benefit from a flat rate of Sh6,000.
Speaking at the CDF offices in Kanduyi market on March 5, 2020 Wamunyinyi stated that the funds will aide in enhancing and supporting education and infrastructural development.
“These funds will only benefit college and university going students to supplement on what their parents and guardians can pay, this is why we are disbursing at flat rate to enable us have many beneficiaries,” he said.
The legislator said that they had consultations with the county government leadership and ward leadership to help stop the duplication of awards of funds to beneficiaries.
“We have agreed that the county government and ward leadership deals with secondary schools while the constituency deals with colleges and universities to stop duplication where many people were receiving funds from both kitties and minimize inconveniences,” he said.
The law maker blamed the national government for the challenges of inadequacy and delay in disbursement of finances.
“We are experiencing much injustices, no equity in the distribution of funds. Kanduyi receives the Sh113 million flat rate like any of the smaller constituency, It has 8 wards and over 200 and 85 public schools,” he stated.
Wamunyinyi observed that injustices should be addressed so that there should be a formula in the distribution of funds.
Tongaren Mp Dr.Simiyu Eseli has sponsored a motion in the national assembly over unfair distribution of resources.
He appealed to people to understand and accept what they have received.
“Equity in the distribution of resources, let the funds reach the targeted institutions, stop bribery,” he said.
Wamunyinyi said that they use CDF funds to train 200 to 300 boda boda riders yearly where they are also get licenses as road accident precautionary measures.
