A former coast MP Dr. Mtana Lewa has called for peace and unity amongst mijikenda communities as they lined up their leaders ahead of the 2022 general elections.
He said selfishness and hatred among leaders themselves has always caused division among communities leading the public to make wrong choices of their leaders both at the national and county levels.
Speaking during a baraza at Banda la Salama sub county headquarters Wednesday, Dr. Lewa who is former MP for Bahari also urged members of the public to observe the ministry of health protocols to avoid the spread of coronavirus.
He lashed out at some leaders who have been making early campaigns by making night visits to some homes saying it is too early to start confusing the public.
“There is the need for leaders to forge unity and bring all communities together if they expected recognition at the national levels. Selfishness and hatred among themselves will not take them anywhere,” he said.
Dr. Lewa accused intercessors of contributing to the merciless killings of some innocent elderly persons and urged the government to take action.
“These intercessors have been pointing fingers at some of the elderly persons claiming that they are witches and claimed they were behind deaths of some families. In doing so, some families have revolted and killed their elderly ones,” he said.
