The 2022 race for Maara Constituency MP will not be a walk in the park for both the sitting MP Kareke Mbiuki and several other hopefuls.
Businessman Antony Riungu has promised to mount a serious campaign and defeat his opponents.
Many residents believe Riungu will bring change and turn a new leaf for Maara constituency.
Riungu told Hot News he has a background in community development and has dedicated years of his life to uplift the locals’ lives.
“I have helped many people in my constituency get clean water and electricity. I started self-employment projects for the local youth” he said.
He added that he is also focusing on helping needy students get access to education.
For the farmers, Riungu said he wants to ensure they get access to markets and set up irrigation schemes and water pans for most of their produce.
“I have helped 80 percent of farmers in Maara get funding to expand their yields. I have also set up mobile clinics for women and children in rural Maara and helped them get easy access to health care services” he said.
Riungu said he has also helped female entrepreneurs to access to funding to expand their businesses through talking and partnering with microfinances and banks.
