Nyamira Senate candidate Adams Mochenwa has urged voters to elect new leaders for the county to prosper.

“Our leaders have failed us and done nothing, but they only give use false promises,” he told the Star on Monday on the phone.

Mochenwa said some leaders are elected but fail to deliver their promises. He said such leaders should not be entrusted with public offices.

Mochenwa, 24, is vying on the Democratic Party ticket.

He said if elected, he will articulate critical issues that have not been addressed by the current leadership. 

The youthful politician said he will focus on health, agriculture, education, youth and women empowerment and general oversight.

“It is important to change the leadership to better the lives of our youth, women, persons with disability, and general oversight of how resources given to the counties are being spent,” Mochenwa said.

He will battle it out with former Senator Mong’are Okong’o (Ford Kenya), incumbent Okong’o Omogeni (ODM), former assembly legal officer Jared Sagwe (Wiper) and US-based businessman Alvin Machoka (Upia). 

Others in the race are Thomas Mariga (KPP), James Onyancha (DAP), Christopher Mokaya (Usawa), Nancy Bitengo of the National Ordinary People Empowerment Union (NOPPE) and Philip Mogaka of NRP.
