Gem legislator Elisha Odhiambo has distributed donations including foodstuffs, face masks, and soap to cushion residents from the effects of the Covid 19 pandemic.
As a result of the, the MP has received lots of commendations from his philanthropic deeds to his constituents. Joseph Otieno, a resident of East Gem ward and also a beneficiary of the donations said he has known the legislator as a good servant for the past ten years.
“He has always been here for us, in times of need. Personally I’ve known Akuba since the year 2010. His selflessness did not start yesterday. Thank you for considering us mheshimiwa,” says Joseph.
Elisha Odhiambo has lately been in the front line of National politics. Early this week, he urged President Uhuru Kenyatta to reconstitute the cabinet in a bid to incorporate the opposition and technocrats as the country prepares herself for economic recovery post-Covid-19.
Gem constituency is made up of six wards, which Elisha says will each get their shares of the donations. “We finished the distribution of food in East Gem Ward today. We have included face masks in the distribution package after realizing that most people still lack these very essential equipment. The next phase is Central Gem Ward. Stay Safe,” Elisha said.
