Ganze Member of Parliament Teddy Mwambire said has completed almost all stalled projects in the constituency.

The first-term lawmaker said he has spent Sh167 million on school and dormitories projects that had stalled.

He said some of the projects were constructed and abandoned in 2007 by MPs who ignored them and initiated their own.

Speaking at Vitengeni Baptist Secondary School on Thursday, the legislator opened an ultramodern twin lab a project which was started by Joseph Kingi in 2007.

He also opened a modern dormitory which was also left uncompleted by one of his predecessors.

“We thought whenever one inherited projects which were not completed by the other legislator he would complete them before embarking on new ones but here in Ganze it was not the case for more than 10 years," he said.

Mwambire said the projects took him three years to complete the stalled projects. He said the remaining stalled projects will be completed in July.

He said their focus was not just on completing the project but upgrading them to modern standards.

“We have completed a modern laboratory here and we are hopeful that it will boost the performance of the students,” he said.

In Migumo Miri area he said the county government built a dispensary and the NG-CDF also built another dispensary during the reign of Peter Shehe but the two facilities have no drugs or medical personnel.

Mwambire said there is a need to increase the NG-CDF funds in Ganze because the area has more challenges of poor infrastructure than other areas.

“The laboratory, classrooms and the renovations will boost the morale of teachers and students," Mjimba said.

Elias Mwanza, a representative of parents also hailed the MP for his dedication to education infrastructure.

He urged the national government to increase NG-CDF funds to help in creating more development projects.
