Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Greedy Member Of Parliarment

Nyakach Constituernc in Kisumu has been experiencing many technical and infastructural problems. From the main road to the village it's potholes . Residents have cried to their member of parliarment but it's as if the cries of the r esidents ar falling on deaf ears. The roads are very bad and they need repair or reconstruction. Infrastructure not forgotten, hospitals and schools are not at their maximum best and many facilities still miss for example computers, and not forgetting that too much work is very dangerous to kids tus playing kits and balls i even wonder where the member of parliament is taking the development money for the community. This also applies to other member of parliarment from other regions thus the finance minister and his team should always investigate how the money is always spent.
