The area MP Hon. Jeremiah Kioni and the area MCA Hon. Peter Gathungu have been disagreeing on who should electrify the dispensary. According to the MCA the MP is responsible for electricity issues and vice versa to the MP

The chairperson of the managing committee of the dispensary earned himself 3 nights in Karai police station for writting to the Rulal Electrification Authority in query about the situation of the facility.

These electricity lines pass next to the facility's gate to the neighbour's homes.
