Kioni also addressed the issue of the poor economy of the counties within the Mt Kenya region.The Ndaragwa MP has claimed that the people from the central region receive low amount of money despite their high contribution to the Kenya Revenue Authority.
The amount becomes very small to make meaningful develpments to the common citizens.While speaking, he related the high amount of money bursaries offered to Garissa county(ksh 95,000 per student) to the low amount of bursaries offered to counties within the mount Kenya region.
On average, Kioni claimed that the students from the central region receive amounts less than Ksh10, 000 per student which is inversely proportional to the tax collected from the region.photo courtesy- Former MP Kabando Wa Kabando
On his side, the former MP for Mukurweini, Kabando claimed that the solutions of the current government will be solved by a new government that will be formed after the next year's general elections.He claimed that there exist a lot of corruption in the government, a vice that had been a major setback to the economy of the country.
Both leaders agreed that president Uhuru needs to enhance the national peace in the country during his remaining period of leadership.They also agreed that any political meetings should be held to address the needs of the common citizens and not the political interests of selected individuals.kindly share your views.
