George Theuri is in his second term as Embakasi West Member of National Assembly.
First elected in 2013 under the TNA coalition ticket, George had been promoted from Councillor-ship.
As a Councillor for Umoja 1, he was committed to boosting Youth Empowerment and Small/Medium and Large business enterprises in his area. This, he has continued in a wider area as a member of national assembly.
However, there’s one mixed legacy for the man who dresses like an American rapper that is in question. His development record as pertains infrastructure like roads is slow.
Residents say that though Theuri was great as a Councilor, he has not lived up to that billing as an MP.
I guess it might be due to the ‘relaxing’ that one encounters as they get comfortable in being in politics for quite some time.
It is such comfort that affords him the luxury to buy Television sets for police stations and posts in Embakasi West constituency rather than to direct that energy to build better roads and interconnectivity inside his constituency.
Nonetheless, Theuri is praised for being fair in distribution of bursary to the constituents per ward.
Apart from roads, there is that menace of poor drainage systems occasioned by lack of good garbage collection.
‘During the rainy season, it is clear to see that most roads and sections of Umoja and other estates in Nairobi suffer from poor drainage. There are pools of water everywhere”. a resident who spoke to Umoja News said.
He urged Theuri to focus on roads, drainage and garbage collections.
Even as insecurity is an issue in Embakasi West and its environs, the man who seats as a member in the Departmental Committee on Administration & National Security in parliament should focus more on his constituency.
