The action was motivated by the fear that the rally would be a fail after the area leaders defected to Jubilee party. TUKO.co.ke has been duly informed that all the workers who would ignore the memo sent through chiefs would face unspecified disciplinary action or lose their job.

Two months ago, it emerged that the governor had instructed the Wajir County government employees to welcome him in the county after arriving from Saudi Arabia. All the contractors in the county were also reportedly told to endorse him after the Degodia clan shifted support to Mohamed Abdi for the gubernatorial seat.

Wajir has 5 ODM MPs, an ODM nominated senator and a senator elected on ODM. Its on record that the 2 senators and 4 other MPs defected to the ruling party, Jubilee.

There is a growing worry in ODM that Jubilee will triumph in the area since the MP’s who defected have a large following in the region.

    No one should be forced to attend a political rally as a basis for keeping their job (unless of course the job is in the Political Party itself). But surely there are labor laws in Kenya that will protect these people who are threatened with such ridiculous demands–if not there is a Constitution in Kenya with rights afforded to Wananchi. Hopefully the laws would also prevent such misuse of authority by holding those who misuse their authority in this way accountable to Wananchi. He may have been returning from Saudi Arabia but Kenya is not Saudi Arabia and he is a Kenyan official not a Saudi Arabian official. Basically only dictators behave in this manner (if it is true that he demanded employees to show up at a political rally or else be fired), not those in a democratic society such as Kenya.
