MPs accuse Uhuru and Ruto over state jobs, threaten to withdraw support

By James Munyeki | June 2nd 2015 at 00:00:00 GMT +0300

Politics dominated the Madaraka Day celebrations held in Ol Kalou, with a section of legislators criticising the Jubilee government for allegedly leaving out the county in the recent parastatal appointments.

Ol Kalou MP David Kiaraho and his Kipipiri counterpart Samuel Gichigi said residents felt let down by the President Uhuru Kenyatta administration as they overwhelmingly voted for the Jubilee Alliance in the 2013 elections.

"We want the President to know that he has let us down for the first time. It is a shame that no one from the entire county was given a position in the parastatals despite us having fully supported the Jubilee party," Kiaraho said.


Mr Gichigi said they may withdraw their support for the Government if something is not done to rectify the 'anomaly.' "We have not reached that position yet, but we will reconsider our support if he does not act. There is no way that we can give our support and not be appreciated," he noted.

Mr Kiaraho noted that leaders from the area will meet soon to decide on the next course of action.

"It is a shame that the people of Nyandarua are not being appreciated despite the fact that we have always rallied behind the President," he noted.

Governor Daniel Waithaka, who also attended the function, urged Nyandarua leaders to unite for the sake of development and promised to honour all the pledges he gave during the campaign period.
