Documents in our possession reveal that the road is actually under KERRA and was advertised in 2018 and allocated a fund of Sh7.7M. 

Residents of Bumula are decrying the poor state of roads in the populous Constituency in what is termed as due to negligence and misused KERRA funds by the current MP.

 Key among the roads include the Mateka- Bumula-Myanga road and the Tulumba-mayanja Kibuke-Nyangali-Miluki road.
In an audio recorded by the MP and shared to us, the MP while conversing with Chief officer Roads Eng. Maurice Marango, the MP bitterly declines that the Tulumba to Miluki road is not under his mandate. 
A matter that the chief officer refutes saying it’s a KERRA road. The phone recording has irked the chief officer who has since termed it unethical and stooping to low.
However, documents in our possession reveal that the road is actually under KERRA and was advertised in 2018 and allocated a fund of Sh7.7M. 

In the records, the road number C817, the KERRA records show that it was financed in financial year 2018/2019. 
It’s alleged the MP has only focused on roads within his area of Kimaeti while other areas are neglected in his projects especially roads.
The road has been subject of blame games that has made residents bitter with the MP over what they term as biased distribution of development projects in Bumula Constituency and wrongful blaming the MP. 
Over the weekend, Governor Wycliffe Wangamati toured Kibuke area, assessed the poor state of the road and directed the roads department to work out all legal frameworks to have the road done and made passable once rains reduce.

Bumula residents have vowed to push for accountability of the roads funds as they allege the MP is busy pocketing KERRA funds immediately the county repairs the roads. 
Insider sources reveal the MP is bitter and fighting the Governor over personal interests in some projects.
