Rarieda MP has warmed hearts of many Kenyans with his generous initiative. The firebrand lawyer, well remembered for representing National Super Alliance (NASA) in the successful 2017 presidential election petition, said he would not abandon the Ondoa Nyasi project aimed at eradicating grass thatched houses and replacing them with iron sheet roofed structures.
In his tweet seen on Saturday, October 13, Amollo revealed the amount he uses from his salary to fund the project, vowing he would not be stopped by discouraging sentiments of critics who have rubbished the project challenging him to build stone-walled houses for the women
For the avoidance of doubt, I do, and will keep doing Ondoa Nyasi. I spend 65% of my Bunge earnings doing 5 every month @ 70K each. CDF Funds cannot be used for this. Anyone willing is welcome to assist, including building a MORE EXPENSIVE Structure. Have 260 pending requests. pic.twitter.com/30EaKms5OR

“For the avoidance of doubt, I do, and will keep doing Ondoa Nyasi. I spend 65% of my Bunge (Parliament) salary in this project every month,. National Government Constituency Development Funds cannot be used for this project” read part of Amollo’s tweet. He disclosed that he was building five houses every month, with every structure costing at least KSh 70, 000 which translates to KSh 350, 000 monthly expenditure.
The MP turned a deaf ear to those who said the project was insignificant in the sense that the widows would still be living in mud houses with the iron sheets roof being the only difference. He challenged them to bring in their contributions and even help develop the expensive structures they proposed rather than sitting on the sidelines nay saying. “Anyone willing is welcome to assist, including building a more expensive structures. I have 260 pending request for such houses. We have done the 23rd for Mama Daina Okello at Magombe and presented solar units to all other widows whom we had build houses for” Amollo said.
In yesterdays tweet he also revealed presenting solar units to the women
And later did the 23rd Ondoa Nyasi for Mama Daina Okello at Magombe Village. Took opportunity to present Solar Units to all the Widows for whom we have previously constructed. pic.twitter.com/vryktarioS
