Constituent Services

INTERNSHIPS

My office is always accepting applications from college students and young professionals interested in interning in my Nzega office. By assisting my district staff, interns have the opportunity to gain firsthand knowledge about how a parliamentary office provides constituent services and interacts with the community.

Interns in my office will have an opportunity to learn about the legislative process, the Representative roles of the Member of Parliament as well as the Supervisory/Advisory roles, and the interaction between the people of my constituency through my office with the Executive and the Judiciary (the two other pillars of the government).
All internships are voluntary and under unpaid arrangements and candidates who are chosen for an internship are responsible for paying their living expenses. In some few occasions interns in my office can arrange to receive academic credit for their work, but must provide in writing all requirements set by their educational institution. While we happily assist all those seeking credit, the burden is on the student to meet any requirements for gaining academic credit.

SHEDULE A MEETING WITH HK

Schedule Request
If you are interested in meeting with me to discuss an issue or would like to invite me to attend or speak at an event, please send an email to: hkigwangalla@gmail.com . In the email, please include the following information: Your contact information, organization, name of event, description of event, time of event, and location of event. Due to the amount of requests my office receives, submitting a request does not guarantee that I will be able to meet with your group or will be available on the particular date(s) requested. If I am not available we will work to have one of my staff members meet with you.
NOTE: If, in any case, you are experiencing an emergency or require assistance with an individual case, please call my constituent office. While I make every effort to honor every meeting request as soon as possible, my staff may be able to assist you in a more timely fashion.

CASEWORK

One of the most important things I do as a Member of Parliament is to help people with personal as well as institutional problems. Although I MAY NOT BE ABLE to override the decisions made by the government but I believe I may be able to influence them to work in your best interests. I can also most often intervene on a person’s behalf to answer questions, find solutions, or just cut through the red tape.
