Kilifi, KENYA: Newly elected Ganze Member of Parliament Teddy Mwambire has vowed to audit the Constitutional Development Fund CDF for the past five years as his first task in office.
Speaking in Kilifi town on Sunday, Mwambire vowed to carry out a thorough audit on the use of National Government Constituency Development Funds (NGCDF) kitty by the former committee.
He said the audit report will be a mirror on how the funds were used and the projects he will prioritize as he takes the seat from Peter Shehe, whom lost in the last week’s General Elections.
“My first assignment will be to carry an audit of how the funds were utilized by the former CDF committee,” Teddy said.
“That will help me identify which projects to prioritize depending on how the funds were utilized on the projects by the former legislature,” he added.
He further said his ambition is to improve infrastructure in schools with a promise in equipping primary schools with desks and other learning facilities.
“I want to also make sure Secondary schools have fully been equipped to modern laboratories since most of them do not have these facilities which are key to the education sector improvement in Ganze,” he said.
Mwambire of Orange Democratic Movement ODM won the seat with a landslide margin of 14,703 votes against Peter Shehe of Jubilee. He promised to work with all the four ward representatives to fast-track development projects within the constituency.
“All the four wards will be served equally but I will also try to put more efforts in some areas of Jaribuni and Bamba wards that have remained marginalized for a long period,” he said.
