Stop politicking and work, Midiwo tells Nyanza politicians
Gem MP Jakoyo Midiwo and his Ugunja counterpart James Opiyo Wandayi have challenged leaders in Nyanza to shun politics and instead concentrate on development.
The legislators said it was time for elected leaders to initiate and implement development projects other than engaging in unnecessary talk.
Mr Jakoyo advised Kenyans to take advantage of devolution and engage in income generating activities.
The leaders were speaking at a meeting in Gem over the weekend.
Mr Wandayi took issue with some leaders who have already started campaigning for various elective posts ahead of the 2017 general elections.
He said the next polls were several years away and asked such leaders to give elected leaders time to work.
“It is unfair for some leaders to engage in politics yet we are just from the general elections, we should concentrate on development other than politics,” said Mr Wandayi.
