Kangundo Central MCA Moses Mitaa will defend his seat in next year’s general elections. The MCA’s presence on the ground is felt extensively due to his development record that has seen his opponents get worried, spreading propaganda to the effect that he will not run for re-election. A go-getter and man of the people, the MCA has been instrumental in pushing the Machakos county government to process land leases for Kangundo town in order to allow property owners access financial facilities to develop their premises. He was last year at Kangundo Bus Park during the launch of county bursary disbursement by Governor Alfred Mutua. Land leases are key to the way forward for Kangundo’s growth and its future planning the, amiable MCA stated “Once the leases are processed, property owners are able to easily access financial services from banks and other lenders,” he stated. The MCA was on the forefront in pushing the processing of a title deed for Kangundo High School in whose land the proposed South Eastern Kenya University will be set up. Seku signed a memorandum of understanding with former area MP and the board of management of Kangundo High School to establish a university campus in the institution. World Bank advanced Machakos county Sh1 billion conditional grant to fund infrastructure projects in the three municipalities of Machakos town, Mavoko and Kangundo/Tala where the latter was allocated the lion’s share of funds amounting to Sh400 million. The move saw improved infrastructure in Kangundo town with street lighting projects helping to fight high crime rates thus greatly improving the economy and security. Among other developments the MCA has initiated is equipping and reticulation of boreholes, grading of roads, construction of Ukanga Utune community water pan, installing Mulika Mwizi in village centres, upgrading of Kangundo Level 4 Hospital infrastructure and recently, the establishment of Ngulini Health Centre, construction of ECDE classes and uplifting of Kangundo town through urban upgrading programme.
