Learners  and development projects managers will receive the constituency development funds starting  this January.

This follows an advisory by the Attorney General to the national treasury to release  National Government-Constituency Development Fund in batches to constituencies .

The advice from the office of the AG proceeded a legal battle where the supreme court ruled that MPS violated the constitution by transacting on the CDF funds.

The re-introduction for CDF comes amid pleas by members of parliament arguing that the funds is their lifeline in parliamentary terms.

Before Parliament went into recess, a section of MPS who were hosted by Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro noted they will champion to see that the funds are prudently utilized once they are released by the treasury.

On his part Markwet west MP Timothy Kipchumba praised the works which have been achieved through NG-CDF saying the legislators are working to ensure the kitty is entrenched in the law.

He lauded the labour based model of doing development works since it saves money and ensures attainment of quality works.
