A parliamentary aspirant in Kiambu has urged opposition leaders to change campaign strategy and respect President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Lari MP aspirant Muturi wa Rugongo said it is wrong for each leader in opposition to accuse Jubilee of failing and not saying what they have done to improve the situation.

“Leaders are not elected because of the party but to ensure the areas they come from have developed,” Rugongo said.

Speaking at Kimende town yesterday, Rugongo said it is shameful for a governor to be heckled and booed by the residents because he was talking ill about the President.

“The President is a national figure. He represents a lot of people from different communities, races, political affiliation and occupations.

One would feel bad when someone loses that respect for him,” he said.
