Kibwezi east member of parliament Jessica Mbalu has warned competitors against bringing politics in development in a bid to gain mileage.

Mbalu was responding to claims that she's managed the constituency's NG-CDF by acquiring a land to build police station while an idle land sits at the market.

A section of the residents led by Willy Malile, a parliamentary hopeful told the press that there was no need to construct

 Kithasyu police post in the outskirts of the town.

Also they claimed the MNA didn't consult nor consider the sentiments of the locals.

However Mbalu explained that the site where the post is built was gazetted and also she didn't buy the land as alleged.

She noted that every resident is entitled to security not the ones living in the markets only.

She observed that the stakeholders were involved in the decision to build the post there.

Mbalu stated that soon the post will be complete and the police can move in.

"The police are not under the MP but the OCS, These are just cheap politics by people against development. The work is in progress and will be completed in due time so that everything is done right," she said.

"The police post will ensure the residents loving around there will be secure, that is why we have devolution and also the government will bring more projects," she added.

The second term MP disclosed that the land being mentioned in the market belongs to the Kenya Wildlife service.
