Benedict muasya a graduate of Catholic University of Eastern Africa with BCOM(finance), a tax auditor by profession.
He is eyeing the Kitui West Parliamentary seat and says there is no looking back.
“I have made my mind on this. This is a leadership calling from my community elders and a section of Kitui west voters, who want to see a change in constituency leadership,” said Ben muasya in an interview
Ben Muasya says he fully supports the government’s 100 per cent transmission to secondary schools for children but he is worried that the constituency does not have quality schools
“If elected the next MP, I want to ensure that each student gets skills after school. I will put up centres (schools) of excellence (high schools) in every ward,” he said.
He says that currently, pupils still walk for distances to access public schools even in semi urban areas like Kabati and other places.
“Parents are forced to take their children to unaffordable private schools or back to their villages. This should not be like that at all,” said Ben muasya .
He said the expansion of secondary schools is wanting, adding that for good results, teachers should also be motivated but constructing good houses.
“We also need to look at the ratio of students to teachers. This consistituency has not been performing like others in national exams because of many issues that I will strive to correct,” he said.
The upcoming politician, who will be facing a crop of other politicians that may include Edith Nyenze, Mbai Maimai (not very sure), says he is development conscious and plans to open up industrial parks.
“These industrial parks will be spread around the constituency. I will talk to our people with land to lease out to developers so that we can create jobs for the youth,” he said.
