Next year is transitional election, vote wisely, Kenyans told

 Kenyans have been urged to choose their leaders with their destiny in mind. This will be by considering the track record of candidates vying for various election seats especially the presidential and gubernatorial ones which have the most impact to residents. They are also the most consequential.

While speaking at Wote town in Makueni County, former UNCTAD Secretary General Dr Mukhisa Kituyi told Kenyans that their wellbeing was tied to the kind of leaders they elect. His sentiments were echoed by Narc Kenya party leader Martha Karua. Karua said Makueni was a county where devolution works. She compared it with her home county of Kirinyaga where Kirinyaga County Referral Hospital lacked x-ray equipment to treat the injured.

“They (Kerugoya County Referral Hospital) will send you to a private hospital and they are Referral”, she said.


Karua and Kituyi said that while they witnessed abundant development in various sectors in Makueni County, all that could go to waste if residents elect a governor who was not pro-development next year. They also urged residents to demand for transparency and accountability of their taxes which they pay for work to be done.

While speaking in Kikamba, National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi observed that the Makueni county hospitals were sparkling clean and someone can eat muthokoi within the premises without worrying about diseases.

“Kuu mikiitaa Muthokoi. Kwitu tukitaa Kitheri na ukekiiwa vaa nikuya”, he said.

The third most powerful leader in Kenya also called upon politicians not to be led by their stomachs but by service delivery to citizens. He said they should be faithful, transparent and accountable in their service to wananchi.

The outgoing Makueni governor said that the team will be called Muungano wa Wazalendo whose clarion call is Change you can trust.  Prof Kivutha Kibwana said that they will approach other like minded Kenyans and “people who have a history of doing the right thing”. He added that with God and votes cast by Kenyans, they will win next year’s elections.
