Thika Town MP Alice Wambui Ng’ang’a has requested her constituents to re-elect her come August 8 arguing that she deserved a second term to complete projects she initiated.

Addressing teachers from Thika East Sub-County at St. Johns Teachers College, Kilimambogo yesterday, the legislator said that her development record was quite evident and there was still a lot of work to be done.

“I have tried my level best especially in the education sector to see that I have uplifted the infrastructure of our schools throughout the constituency. My greatest joy is when I see a smile on the face of that person who really needed me and I positively changed their lives. All I am asking you now is to give me an opportunity to finish the work I started, said Alice.

Comparing her tenure in office with that of the immediate former President Mwai Kibaki, the MP described her development agenda as a two-term project asking not be judged on the basis of its performance in her first term. According to her, the past four years were basically meant to lay out foundation for bigger things as per the resources that were at her disposal.

“President Kibaki barely did much in his first term in office as it was his government’s strategy to lay concrete foundation for economic recovery. What we witnessed later was tremendous development across the country. My second term in office largely seeks to continue with the projects we launched over the last four years. When I ran four years ago, I listened to voters and outlined the issues I intended to work on if elected. These issues have been my top focus since I took office,” she added.

Alice warned her rivals that it won’t be a walk in the park to oust her stressing that she was totally ready for the elections.

“I am telling my competitors that I am ready to meet them at the ballot. They should be ready for a serious political duel.”

The MP also promised teachers working in Thika East Sub-County that she would pursue with the Ministry of Education and the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) to see to it that Gatuanyaga and Ngoliba Wards got classified as hardship areas, just like the neighbouring in Machakos County whose teachers worked in similar conditions.

“I don’t know why people assume that Thika does not have areas where teachers work in hardships due to their climatic, geographical and economic conditions. The working conditions in Gatuanyaga and Ngoliba (Wards) are similar to those of our neighbours in Machakos County who enjoy some hardship allowances. I will follow up their plea so that we can prevent the exodus of teachers to Machakos (County) who seek for transfers with a view to enjoy these allowances,” said the legislator.
