Sirisia politician Moses Nandalwe has today, Tuesday written to Bungoma Governor Wycliffe Wangamati to upgrade Sirisia to a Municipality.
In the letter seen by Wakajuaness, the youthful politician urged Governor Wangamati to upgrade Sirisia to a Municipality in order to increase revenue collection to the County through parking fee and other tourist activities.
“I write to you… with intended convertion of Sirisia into Municipality status,” read the September 6th letter which was signed by the lawyer.
The Urban areas and Cities act 2012 allows a Governor, through the County Assembly, to upgrade a town to a Municipality.
So far, Bungoma County already has Bungoma town and Kimilili as established Municipalities with Webuye on the way.
If upgraded, Nandalwe says, will create employment opportunities and enhance service delivery to the people.
Nandalwe, who vied for the Sirisia Parliamentary seat on 2017 on an ODM ticket and lost to Jubilee’s John Waluke has initiated several community projects in Sirisia among them water, community ambulance and hundreds of bursaries for the needy children despite being unelected.
The letter to the Governor could be Nandalwe’s wake-up call to the incumbent MP John Waluke who has been seen on several occasions moving around with the Deputy President Dr. William Ruto’s Tangatang team.
Governor Wycliffe Wangamati had not responded to thhe request letter by the time of publishing this post.
