On the 9th August 2022, Embakasi West constituents went to the polling stations and made their voice loud and clear, they were tired of George Theuri.
The two –term legislator was however not ousted by a landslide owing to his easy going nature and help t the community through bursary and NG-CDF.
He has used the two to help many constituents and as such deserves credit.
With the High Court decision to declare NG-CDF unconstitutional, it was easy to concede.
Tough task lies ahead for Mark Mwenje.
However, he must complete the rehabilitation works left behind by George Theuri.
Schools must be renovated, new classrooms added.
But that is not the whole plan.
Mark Mwenje must lobby the government, county government, roads body, ministry of transport and relevant bodies to tarmac, pave and raise the stature of Embakasi West.
We need good roads and drainage.
We need better street lighting
We need security
We need better solid and liquid waste management
We need better housing among others.
