The residents of the Nangina ward in Funyula sub-county Busia county are still tongue-tied following the generous act by businessman Douglas.
Speaking to us in Bwangangi one of the beneficiaries could not hide his joy of having a house he has always wished to have ” Nashukuru Sana Dagi Kwa haya yote Mungu ambariki” he said as tears rolled down his cheeks.
When contacted by our source Douglas said he was doing this as a way of giving back to the community.
He said this is just one among many projects that he has launched the other one being a Community-based organization that he launched in August. He reported to us that the CBO is running smoothly where members are borrowing and refunding money and is expected to expand its geographical coverage by next year January.
The well-endowed businessman has caused political tsunami among confidants of the area mca since he declared interest in Nangina ward member of county assembly due to his connection andy ability to move masses, as witnessed recently during the burial of pastor Opetu.
Mr Mabangu said his greatest strength purely lies with the people of Nangina and urged his opponents to prepare to face him.Others who’ve shown interest in the race include John Obwogo(current mca) Maureen (nominated mca) and Soweto academy principal Mwalimu Makabwa.
