County revenue allocation formula should benefit all

What you need to know:

  • There are many car wash bays, some illegal, along the roads.

Principles • There are vital lessons for professionals from CS Mutahi Kagwe’s questioning by the parliamentary Health Committee on the looted Covid-19 funds, says Titus Syengo. The key one, he adds, is on the value of professional ethics. “Professionals have been misused by seniors to approve wrong decisions. Mutahi has some advice for them: Resign rather than taint your name." His contact is [email protected]

Equity • As the stalemate in the Senate continues, Mathew Mwangi’s take is that the county revenue allocation formula should benefit all. To him, this presents an opportunity to uplift all the regions. "One can't solve historical injustices by starving the Mt Kenya region of revenue. We should be thinking of creating equity and not ‘fixing’ regions erroneously perceived to be rich." His contact is [email protected]

Bad road • Not long ago, Dr Victor Isadia complained about the poor state of the road from Kwa Mundia to Kwa Tom, all the way to Zone T in Theta Ward of Kiambu County. To his pleasant surprise, work on it has begun. “I wish to thank Governor James Nyoro for having the road improved. He has not only started the upgrade, but has also employed hundreds of youth and women." His contact is [email protected]

Defiance • The story of police roadblocks is to Charlie Wakaba Kamanga the best proof that “either the bosses do not read newspapers or are scared of their juniors”. Although IG Hillary Mutyambai has banned roadblocks have ignored him. “The Kabete Police Station roadblock continues business as usual even after Watchie highlighted its unwelcome existence.” His contact is [email protected]

Structures • Nairobi resident Diana D’Souza can't help faulting Nema for allowing hundreds of “exceptionally tall highrise buildings to come up in the Lavington area, with inadequate infrastructure, water, sewage and parking”. There are many car wash bays, some illegal, along the roads. “While these have adequate water, taps have dried up for Mageta Road residents" Her contact is [email protected]

Have a proper day, won't you!
