Here is how Kenyans reacted to the incident:
The problem with Tharaka constituency is the size. Huge size with little population. If the get 30km of road it will not be felt unlike other constituencies where even 15 km connects many centres and impact is felt. But hapo kwa maji i feel. It is very close to Mt Kenya and water can be piped and move through gravity or without pumping. The issue of water should have been addressed like 40 yrs ago. Even your mps and the popular kindiki has failed big on the issue of water in that constituency.
Kibicho was just there for politics.The whole of Tharaka Nithi County,there are only 7 NG projects.It is a shame. Alafu you wanted them to lose their national resources allocation.This MP is too honest to Kibicho and the who Uhuru idiots!
The issues the mp is raising should be raised in parliament where Mr speaker will give direct orders to the various parliamentary committees of the said issues to sort for solutions from the various stake holders like now the ministries...that's how govt works!!! Not yapping in the funerals looking for fame.....
This MP is a JOKER, a determined leader could have at least argued that, "our roads are pathetic and I've done 123 to fix tge situation but 123 made me fail, please help me make it a success", same applies to all his cries. This utterances should come from a Tharaka constituent NOT from a leader they've elected to represent them!
