Wamuchomba’s beef with the NGAAF C.E.O. over disaster kitty.

Kiambu Women Representative Gathoni Wamuchomba has hit out at the National Affirmative Action Fund (NGAAF) for failing to release money to help mitigate effects flooding in Thika sub-county.

Speaking at Gachagi Slums while distributing blankets to victims of floods, Wamuchomba lamented that she was forced to use her own resources to assist the residents.

She clarified that even though she did not have any issue with using her own resources, her personal intervention was a drop in the ocean considering the magnitude of the the problem.

She accused NGAAF leadership of negligence pointing out that despite applying for the emergency cash in time, they were yet to respond more than 48 hours later.

“I wrote to the chairman (NGAAF) requesting for some emergency assistance as the Kiambu coffers are empty. My application was approved by county commissioner in five minutes but the officers at the NGAAF are dilly-dallying since Sunday. This is wrong and unacceptable. This is total negligence of duty,” complained Wamuchomba.

She wondered the motive behind the C.E.O's actions, whom she accused of playing hide and seek with her to a point of even switching off his phone.

“We take great exception to the delay in releasing the funds which would go a long way in alleviating the suffering occasioned by the floods,” she said.

Scores of residents have over the past few days remained marooned in flood water since Saturday when heavy rains started pounding the area as both the area MP Eng. Patrick Wainaina and Governor Ferdinand Waititu embarked on a mission to clear the water by unclogging blocked drainage.
