Ganze residents in Kilifi County questions authorities over delay by the government to finalize the construction, equip and operationalize the stalled Dingiria dispensary.


The building has now been transformed into a meeting hall by women and youth groups from Dingiria sub-location in Sokoke ward, Ganze sub-county. 


The construction of the facility was commenced by former Ganze Member of Parliament Joseph Kingi in 2004 using the Constituency Development Fund (CDF).


Dismuss Ndoko, a resident, says for years now the community have been forced to travel for over 60 kilometers to seek for treatment and other health services.


“This facility was meant to ease our health burden is now a social hall for women and youth groups who converge for their chama meetings, as the poor residents struggle to go to other health facilities,” he says.


2015/2016 financial year, the Kilifi County government allocated Sh 6 Million for completion and equipping of the facility.
