Section of Murang’a leaders bash Kandara MP

A section of Murang’a leaders have told Kandara Member of Parliament (MP), Alice  Wahome  to focus on development and avoid dragging President Uhuru Kenyatta into dirty politics.

The leaders led by the County Deputy Governor, Kamau Maina said the MP’s opinion should not be taken as stand of the people Murang’a.

Kamau accompanied by among others former Maragua MP, Elias Mbau, defended the government for many development programmes it has initiated in the area.

He  said in Murang’a County many roads are being tarmacked, adding that various projects being done by the National Government are meant to improve livelihoods of the County residents.

The  Deputy Governor termed the sentiment of Kandara Legislator as hypocritical considering that recently she praised the same government she is now accusing of many achievements it has done.

On his part, Mbau said it was shameful for the leader elected on Jubilee ticket to accuse the President for what she termed as ‘dwindling of democratic space’.

Mbau said the current government has guaranteed freedom of speech so no leader should say people are being gaged up not to express their views.

“Kandara  MP  said, whatever she said since she is enjoying freedom of speech but when other people talk, she claim they are being sent to say so,” added Mbau.

Mbau who is currently Chairman of Tourism Trust Fund told Wahome to desist from talking of BBI, a Report which is yet to go fully for public participation.

At the same time, a section of Murang’a Members of the County Assembly (MCA’s) told the MP to stop stirring political temperature in central region.

Led  by Ichagaki MCA, Charles Mwangi and his Kimorori counterpart, Amod Murigi, the MCAs wondered why current politics are only witnessed in central Kenya as other parts of the country, people are busy in developmental matters.

They said economy of the country is growing accusing Kandara MP of being used by some individual to cause political divisions in the region.

“Our Kandara MP should first focus in formulating policies which will improve the people’s welfare and stop accusing the President. Her Constituency is allocated funds by the National Government and should tell people how she has used the funds,” said Mwangi.

On Wednesday, Wahome while in Malindi said the country’s economy is doing badly accusing the current regime for trying to limit freedom of expression.

Wahome said the President and opposition leader are pushing BBI so as to benefit themselves, sentiment which has elicited political debate across the country.
