A Mount Kenya MCA from Muranga’s Ichagaki Ward MCA Charles Mwangi Ngan’ga has become the first MCA in Kenya to donate his full April Salary to National Emergency Response Committee in Fight Against COVID-19 across the Country.

“Not once or twice that I have given out my salary as a donation to help my people and not only to my ward by across the County, due to this COVID-19 pandemic I felt the need to help and I would like to call upon other leaders to come together and donate whatever one has to National emergency response committee help in preparation in an effort to help our people, “he said.
