Months after ascending to power on a People’s Empowerment Party Juja Member of Parliament George Koimburi has finally broken his silence speaking on his relationship with President Uhuru Kenyatta ahead of his maiden term.
Speaking during the launch of a road construction within Juja township the legislator stated that he will be working closely with the Jubilee government while dispensing his sworn duties to his people of Juja Constituency.
Koimburi confirmed that he is in very good books with President Uhuru Kenyatta contrary to people’s perception having vied on a PEP ticket and beating his Jubilee counterpart and Munyua’s widow.
“Contrary to the perception that I would be sidelined by the government for defeating the Jubilee candidate, the reality is that I am in good books with President Uhuru Kenyatta’s administration,” said the MP.
The first time MP added that he had revived a lot of projects stalled during the tenure of the late former legislator Francis Munyua Waititu alias Wakapee.
Among the projects started by the former lawmaker but stalled include; the release of 100 power transformers, repair of access roads and upgrading of schools.
Koimburi also stated that times of politics were long gone, and he therefore needed to focus on his sworn agenda by working closely with the government to deliver on his promises.
He also reiterated that the government should pay medical cover for people living with disabilities and also increase funding to enable fending for themselves as they start Income generating activities.
