Kajiado South parliamentary aspirant Jonathan Meijo is urging the electorate to gauge the credibility and ability of aspirants seeking elective seats in the coming general election.
Meijo, who is making his first attempt in elective politics, was speaking on Tuesday at the home of Peterson Kibe during a housewarming ceremony.
“The voters must ask: Who are these looking for votes, what have they done for us, when they were in employment, did they provide services to the public fairly?” suggested Meijo.
He told the electorate in Oloitokitok to reject those politicians hanging on the end coats of their gubernatorial candidates because they have nothing to offer to the people.
“If you believe you can represent the people in parliament or the county assembly and you are still depending on others to look for votes for you, then you are just brainless,” said Meijo as he hits at some of his opponents aligned to certain politicians in the sub-county.
The politician said a leader worth his salt should face the electorate and tell those with the votes what he can do for them if elected.
“Why would one hang on somebody’s coat to be elected? Those are the same people who will disappear once elected because they will not even know who voted for them,” said the politician.
