Nyeri voters urged to vet aspirants ahead of elections
VOTERS have been told to vet aspirants in the forthcoming general election. MPs Mwangi Kiunjuri (Laikipia East) and Kilemi Mwiria (Tigania West) told the electorates that they must thoroughly vet the aspirants for integrity. Kiunjuri said Kenyans should not elect a leader who is rich but one of integrity who will ensure accountability and transparency in management of resources. “It’s time to elect people of integrity and not corrupt leaders who will misuse the funds of county government. Let the youths not be misused during the campaigns. Elect a leader who is capable of ruling this country,” said Public Works assistant minister.
The leaders who were accompanied by Nyeri aspiring governor Nderitu Gachagua, Nyeri County women representative hopeful Mukami Wachira, Nyeri County Council chairman Wachira Maina Ken were speaking at Narumoru in Kieni East district during the thanksgiving day of Kieni Parliamentary aspirant Njoroge Wainaina alias Ebeneza, former who recently graduated at Kemu University.
Mwiria also urged leaders to invest in education as educated leaders will help in taking the counties to greater heights. Gachagua who is the former Mathira MP said Kieni district should have a university and infrastructure improved since it consists of 52 per cent land mass. Wainaina promised that if elected as MP for Kieni he will improve education in the area, water projects and ensure there is food security in the area.
