Kajiado East parliamentary aspirant Wilson Kisemei has blamed the county’s failed development on political wrangles.
Kisemei said the political disconnect between the top leadership and other elected leaders has negatively affected the development and divided the people in the middle.
Kisemei, who was speaking during the burial of Mama Faith Laini at the Erankau area of Oloosirkon Ward, urged the leaders to end their wrangles for the sake of unity and development.
“When elected leaders are wrangling and reading different scripts, there is nothing that can be achieved in terms of development,” said Kisemei.
For the last 3 years, Kisemei said, there is no tangible development that can be said it happened in the county because the leaders are not speaking in one voice.
“We are here today to condole with this family and give them the heart to stand strong after losing a loved one,” said Kisemei.
The politician, who has since announced he will be in the race in 2022, said his ambition as MP for Kajiado East is to change the face of the constituency in terms of development.
He called upon the residents of Oloosirkon/Sholinke Ward to stand firm and support him for the change they can believe in.
“If elected as your MP, I promise that I will work with the county and the national government in place no matter who will be there for the good of this community,” he said.
The politician later told Kajiado News Update he is planning a series of meetings with stakeholders of Kajiado East in Emali, Mashuuru, Kaputiei North Ward, Masimba, Kitengela and Sultan Hamud.
“We want to fix the leadership of this constituency. It is the people who will say what they want in terms of development as ensure that roads and expansion of our schools are prioritised,” said Kisemei.
He said he will work closely with the national government to ensure that each of the five wards has a good road linking to the other.
