Kamukunji MP Yussuf Hassan this morning cast his vote at New Pumwani Primary School polling station to defend his seat on a Jubilee ticket.
Mr Hassan who was addressing the media after casting his vote expressed satisfaction with the election process and urged the residents to maintain peace and come out in large numbers to exercise their democratic right.
He said “It’s a great opportunity to be able to vote and to fulfill your democratic responsibility and I am happy that all these people are here to do the same”.
“We have fought for the right to vote for very many years and also the right for multi-party democracy to make choices and today Kenya people are making choices,” said Hassan.
He said it’s a historic moment because they are going to make very serious choices which would put the country’s future on the road to development.
“The choices we make today are going to affect how we live, how we develop and how we grow as a nation,” he said.
“And this historic election will determine whether Kenya will lift up or will go backward and I think the Kenyan people have come out today to make sure that we lift up as a country, socially, culturally, economically and politically,” he added.
