The Chuluni Ward Mca has called upon Kitui residents to support the government in fighting poverty in the County.
Speaking today when he toured various projects within his ward, Hon. Wangunze stressed on the importance of the public working alongside the government in projects that bring development and wealth creation to the grassroots.
Hon. Wangunze had paid a prompt visit to Ngomango residents in Kyalele village in Chuluni Ward. The area has been experiencing a lot of challenges in their access roads for years, but through the efforts of the MCA one of the roads has been opened up. He has also been facilitating the community members who volunteered to assist in manual works. The legislator has also facilitated construction of an earth dam along the road as the rains approach by personally providing the cement being used in the community project.

Earlier on, Hon. Wangunze had toured Inyuu region, along the Thua River, where he had supervised the subsidized tractors ploughing project by the county Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Livestock. The project will benefit over 20 households in the region.
Hon. Wangunze has praised today’s opening of the very first of its kind garment factory in Kitui: the Kitui County Textile Centre (KICOTEX). He termed the project as a giant step towards poverty eradication in Kitui, and urged all the locals to work hand-in-hand with the County government and Governor Ngilu in fighting poverty and over-reliance to foreign aid in Kitui County.
