Senate Majority Leader Kithure Kindiki has asked contractors tarmacking roads in the country to speedup noting that Jubilee administration will not tolerate poor work.
Speaking on Saturday when he inspected progress of six roads under construction in Tharaka-Nithi County, Prof Kindiki said government would review and terminate deals for contractors who are lazy or doing substandard work.
“We cannot allow lazy contractors to mess up with the work of Jubilee by either working slowly or doing poor work,” said Prof Kindiki.
He said only two out of the six roads under construction in the county were going on well and warned that the four risk their contracts being canceled.
He also asked government engineers assigned the roads to make sure that there is value for public funds paid to the contractors by ensuring that the work is of high standard.
He said President Uhuru Kenyatta was set to visit the county for five days from April 6 to inspect development projects.
Prof Kindiki defended Jubilee administration’s development score card saying it had achieved most of its 2013 poll pledges.
He said many roads had been tarmacked including in marginalised regions of the country since independence.
He also cited free primary school education and payment of national examination fees for Form Four and Standard Eight candidates by government as another achievement.
“Every Kenyan can see the good work done by Jubilee government and Opposition should look for sellable propaganda,” he said.
