First of all, they complained about their road which leads to the community, is in a deplorable state and pleaded on behalf of the MCE to make sure measures are put in place to enable them have access to good road network to help develop their community. Some other challenges include lack of KVIP, lack of culvert/drains/gutters to prevent flooding, lack of Information Centre, community Centre, building facility for early childhood education, damaged of boreholes, spoilt street light, poor network service, Construction of bridge.
The Municipal Chief Executive responded to their petition by saying if he should list their needs in terms of preference, the road is a must and will be constructed. therefore, the KVIP facility will be number one because it was not good for the community members to ease themselves in the bush. He therefore asked them to identify a suitable location for the construction of the KVIP toilet facility as soon as possible and also the community should start the construction of the KVIP Toilet Facility to prove their seriousness then the Assembly will support with either cement or roofing sheet.in the various communities. He again promised to help those communities who lack community put up new ones and repair damaged ones as well.
