KAJIADO SOUTH CONSTITUENCY
Kajiado South Constituency, also known as Loitoktok Constituency. It is one of three constituencies in Kajiado County. The constituency was established for the 1963 elections. The entire area of the constituency is located in Olkejuado county council. The total population is 137,476. The wards are as follows: Kimana ward, Mbirikani ward, Kuku ward, Entonet ward, and Rombo ward. The general assembly was done on 21september which was the first one in the county to serve as a precedent for participatory budgeting project in Kajiado. It had participants from the 5 Wards totaling to 170.
The following are some of priorities or challenges identified by the assembly in general.
1. HUMAN WILDLIFE CONFLICT
The human wildlife conflict cut across Entonet, Mbirikani and Rombo wards due to Amboseli and Tsavo national parks respectively. It was recommended for FENCING with electric wire to prevent animals from destroying crops and livestock.
Most roads are impassable and farmers find ithard to transport their product to the market. During rainy seasons the roads became impassible. We recommend for the roads to be graveled.
In Kimana ward for example, except Kimana Health, Namelok Dispensary, Oldonyo oibor dispensary which are located far away from each other. Community members from other places travel long distances to seek for Health services. The three are located in Kimana Location. It was recommended for a dispensary to be constructed at Enkariak – Ronkena Location in Kimana ward.
Water is piped all the way from Tanzania which is a foreign country. We recommend water from Nolturesh to be supplied to part of the contituency since it is the only reliable source of water in Loitokitok District.
5. TOWN PLANNING
They recommended proper planning for all the centers within Loitokitok, mainly Kimana, Rombo and Loitokitok towns. The towns should have the following as a priority: car park, cemetery, police station street lightening, Sewage system, stadium Administrative offices to cater for all the services.
This is a very important priority for development growth. It should be supported by security officers to all sub -location within the constituency since we are bordering Tanzania.
