Sirisia MP aspirant vying on ODM Moses Nandalwe has said he will focus on improving education and water projects among other projects if elected.

In an interview with the Star on Tuesday, Nandalwe said Sirisia constituency is lagging behind in development, and he hopes to change that. 

"If you compare Sirisia's education level with other constituencies in other counties, you see that it is below average," Nandalwe said.

He also said he will utilise CDF funds to ensure that bright but needy students are fully sponsored to access education.

"I will not only depend on CDF money to fund students, but will use my links and friends to help me support bright students through my Nandalwe Foundation," he said.

Nandalwe said the water crisis is another problem that Sirisia residents face, saying he will drill water points in every village to ensure residents have access to clean water for domestic use.

He further said he will equip his ICT centre to offer an avenue for the youths to gain technological knowledge.

With the high cost of living, Nandalwe said many boda boda youths have failed to pay loans for their motorbikes.

He said those youths need support to start their business so that they can raise cash to pay loans.

Nandalwe urged youths to focus on agriculture and other meaningful economic activities instead of being used by politicians. 

He urged Western region to rally behind Raila Odinga's presidential bid, adding that Azimio will form the next government after August polls.

Nandalwe said he is ODM’s point man in Sirisia constituency and will ensure he delivers votes for the Azimio la Umoja. 

"I have traversed almost the entire country and the song is Azimio la Umoja," he said.

Nandalwe will not be subjected to party primaries since he is the only one vying on an ODM ticket.

He will battle it out with Malaba Keya, Kasembeli Nasiuma, Moses Waliaula and the incumbent MP John Waluke who is also in Azimio  after ditching Ruto's UDA party.
