Two Jubilee governor aspirants jostled for votes in Kajiado East and North constituencies on Sunday and Monday.
Tarayia ole Kores was in Kitengela on Sunday where he addressed thousands of supporters while in company of MP Peris Tobiko and Senator Peter Mositet.
Today, George King’ori, in a convoy of more than 50 cars, took Kitengela, Isinya, Kiserian, Ngong and Ongata Rongai by storm as he mounted one of the largest shows ever seen in the areas.
Kores told KNU after the Kitengela mammoth rally he did not ferry his supporters, “like my other opponents,” from Ongata Rongai and Ngong.
He claimed that one of his opponent and his team were beaten up in Kitengela recently because of his “bad manners” and storming an event that had been organized by ODM supporters.
“It is good they were beaten up so they can learn how to live with people around them. If one can behave like that before he is not elected governor, what kind of leaders do you expect from him? All Kenyans are equal because this is their country and county,” wondered Kores.
“That is not how I operate because ferrying people to political rallies allover will not make you popular. I do not pay people to attend my rallies like one of us in Jubilee,” claimed Kores.
King’ori on the other hand took the opportunity in Kitengela to question Governor David Nkedianye’s development track record and accused him of messing the county through playing clan games.
He claimed that Nkedianye squandered his time in office by failing to unite the people of Kajiado.
“Look at the bus terminus he built in Kitengela town, is this a stage or a kiosk? We have not seen a single road constructed by the county government in the last four years. There was money set aside for the construction of Kitengela market, which we do not understand how it was spent,” claimed King’ori.
The politician claimed people who were allocated stalls in the market were forced to use their money to build their shades and demanded Nkedianye to come out clean on the matter.
Speaking in Isinya, King’ori told the residents that he will ensure that every house will be connected with fresh water if elected governor.
While addressing the people in Ongata Rongai, Kores said he is optimistic he will emerge the JP winner in the party nominations slated for Friday April 21.
“I have done my mathematics well and have been assured by the voters in all the sub counties that they will stand by me in the nominations,” said Kores.
