Contribute To Finance Bill, Senator Urges Residents

Bomet Senator Wakili Hillary Sigei has urged Bomet residents to make their contribution heard on the finance Bill before it is presented before the National Assembly.

Sigei said the Finance Bill was to be passed after incorporating the views of the common Mwananchi through public participation.

He said this at Kapletundo Ward Sunday during a church service as well as a fundraiser for Chebilat Catholic Church in Kapkatet Parish.

The Senator said the Bill was meant to make legislation that would allow funds to trickle down to counties so as to enhance socio-economic development as well as welfare programmes such as bursaries, among others.

At the same time, Sigei urged leaders to work together for the benefit of the people, since they voted them in.

Others present at the function included Immigration PS Prof. Julius Bitok, who was the chief guest, Senate Majority Leader Aaron Cheruiyot; and a host of Members of Parliament, as well as Members of the County Assembly led by their host, Dennis Busienei.
