Embu governor Martin Wambora has been urged to meet all elected leaders and former aspirants to end prolonged political wrangles.
Former Transport PS Cyrus Njiru, who contested against Wambora in last year’s election, former senatorial aspirant Alexander Mundigi and a former parliamentary aspirant Antonio Njagi welcomed the governor’s  recent declaration that he is ready to work with other leaders.
They urged Wambora to call a meeting to deliberate on unity and development.
Njiru said Wambora should be respected, recognised and supported to enable him carry out his duties.  “Embu has had enough fighting before and after the election. This is not good for any county,” he said.
Njiru said, however, former Senator Lenny Kivuti has a right to go to the Supreme Court just as Wambora went to the Court of Appeal after his election was annulled.
Last month, the Court of Appeal upheld Wambora’s election, saying the process was valid.  The court set aside a February 22 judgment by High Court which had nullified Wambora’s election. Kivuti who had challenged Wambora’s election said he intends to appeal to the Supreme Court.  He says he is dissatisfied with the ruling  delivered in Nairobi on August 17.
Mundigi urged Kivuti to withdraw his appeal and reconcile with Wambora for peace to prevail in Embu.
Njagi said unity will help the county develop. He said if all leaders are involved in the governance they will also pull their supporters and build peace.
