MACHAKOS, KENYA: A CORD Member of Parliament in Machakos County has resolved to work with Uhuru Kenyatta and the Jubilee government.
Mr Francis Mwangangi Kilonzo, who is the MP for Yatta Constituency on a Muungano ticket, said his decision to back the Uhuru-Ruto government was motivated by a desire to ensure his people benefit from the sharing of the national cake.
Mwangangi urged all elected leaders to forget of the past and forge ahead with the Government of the day because such partnership will ensure development in their respective areas.
He said political parties or alliances were just vessels to propel leaders to office. He added that after attaining this goal, they should change their ideologies and focus on development.
He called on the Jubilee Government to fulfill its pledges, especially to the jobless youths who are languishing in poverty. Touching on healthcare, he urged the incoming government to ensure provision of medicine to public hospitals. He said that this would enable the common mwananchi to access healthcare affordably.
