Constituents of Kabondo Kasipul staying around Ringa, one of the major markets feeding the constituency have fingered their area MP, Eve Obara, accusing her of sidelining them in terms of service delivery with the latest being a failure by the first term legislator to keep the promise of erecting streetlights in the busy market located along the Oyugis-Kisumu highway, despite having the lights in other areas of the constituency.

According to a number of traders in the market, apart from Ringa, all other markets in the constituency including Kadongo and Mikai, located along the Oyugis-Kisumu highway are secure for businesses due to the lights.

”We have complained over the issue but little has been done. We are wondering why she skipped Ringa yet we are all supposed to benefit from the services of an MP,” one of the traders who believe the MP intentionally failed to erect streetlights in the market as bait for 2022 told this publication.

At the time of Dr. Eve Obara’s election to office, Kabondo Kasipul had a number of floodlights erected across the constituency courtesy of former MP Silvanus Osele. However, despite the floodlights being paid for by the taxpayers, they went obsolete once a new MP, who cared less about their maintenance took over from her rival.

Despite complaints of sidelining some parts of Kabondo Kasipul, a number of voters in the constituency say Dr. Obara has greatly performed in facelifting a number of primary schools in her area, a departure from previous legislators who did not do much to improve the standards of education while in office.
