Assistant Minister Cecily Mbarire has accused her opponents of pointing at her husband’s community to badmouth her to the constituents.
Mbarire said her competitors are criss-crossing her constituency telling the electorate that she is married to a “foreigner”.
Speaking at a fundraiser at Kathande Secondary School in Runyenjes, Mbarire said there is nothing wrong with being married to a Kenyan from a different community, noting that voters should judge her by what she has done for them.
“Haven’t I brought water to the people, built roads and schools even though I am married to a Teso?” she posed. The Runyenjes MP said she loves her husband and was happy God gave him to her.
“I can’t leave him because of some people engaging in tribal politics. Let no man separate what God has put together,” she said.
She was accompanied by Igembe South MP Mithika Linturi and Lugari MP Cyrus Jirongo.
Linturi said Mbarire was still their daughter and though married to a man from elsewhere, she has done a lot for the Runyenjes people.
