Mwala MP Eng. Vincent Musyoka Musau alias Kawaya has thanked President Ruto for giving him the Energy committee chair in National Assembly. A joyful Kawaya who got the position last week promised goodies to the people of Mwala and Lower Eastern.
The Legislator also thanked President Ruto for giving the region positions in National Government despite not getting much support in the August polls.
“Even if we did not give him many votes, he saw it right to give us a lot of positions for CSs – Mutua, Malonzo, PS’s Terry Mbaika, Mueke who we have worked closely with them. We have no reason not to thank our president and serve our people.” The MP said.
“It is like a miracle today, for someone like me who is very thin, I’m in charge of Electricity in the entire country. I cannot be the head and my people fail to get power. I feel so good. We will have plans to enjoy ourselves with power so that people know in Machakos there is only one UDA MP and he is Kawaya. Even the priest gets the biggest sacrament. I want to thank the president for honoring me with the task to lead the committee.” Kawaya added.
The MP also thanked the Hindu council which has been running school feeding programs in several schools in Mwala and Kenya red cross saying they had helped to ease the situation. He proposed a long-lasting solution so as not to rely on relief food.
“So far I’m generating electricity in the river, the first project is 80 percent complete and I want to use it to pump water from the river to people’s farms so that people can use it to do small-scale irrigations… There is legislation on mini-grids, and we want to make regulations for mini-hydros to empower more to make free power for communities. The one near completion will be commissioned by the president when it’s ready.”The MP went on.
On the pollution of Athi River, the MP said, “I’m happy we have a good governor, Wavinya who is like a mother to me. Find Sakaja we talk about the river, when I’m starting my projects here I don’t want any pollution, we will start suing companies that pollute AthiRiver. We cannot have a route pumping water and other people polluting the river.”
The MP spoke during the flagging off of relief food in Yathui, Mwala constituency. The exercise was led by Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi and Governor Wavinya among other stakeholders.
