We are bold in presenting our news as we move to all Maa counties across the country.

MP Peris Tobiko wants President Uhuru Kenyatta to address the Maa nation leaders and share his vision ahead of next year’s general election.

The Kajiado East MP said her quest for the president to address pertinent issues facing the Maa nation as the country is preparing for a general election is valid.

“My appeal to the head of state should not be construed to mean I am being disrespectful to him but should be taken positively by our very own leaders,” said Tobiko.

Tobiko said she made a similar suggestion last week on Monday when she met opposition leader Raila Odinga, in Ongata Rongai, but certain politicians in the county are now using the same to insinuate she abused President Kenyatta by making such demands.

“What I said and what I still insist is that the President should sit with us as he did with Mt Kenya leaders through the Sagana 1-3 meetings. He has also spoken to Nyanza, Eastern and Coast leaders. We also have Jubilee leaders in Kajiado and our people want to see the fruits of the handshake,” said Tobiko.

In a telephone conversation, the MP said while the Jubilee administration built Kajiado the Mashuuru road with bitumen, they also need to get another road in Isinya.

“We would have also liked to request the President to build us the Oloosirkon/Tuala/Kitengela road, the Enkasiti/Birrika road, and the Sultan Hamud/Mashuuru road,” she said.

The legislator said she was elected by the people of Kajiado to represent them, and she has the right to engage the presidency on issues of development.

“I have all the respect for my president but certain leaders around this county are now running amok and saying that I abused the head of state by requesting him to address pertinent issues affecting our people,” she said.

The MP claimed Raila joined the government after his handshake with President Kenyatta and gave the example of the opposition MP Gladys Wanga as having been made the chair of the Finance Committee, a position reserved for the ruling party.

“Kenyatta must listen to us, but if his ears are with some leaders that cannot make independent decisions in Kajiado, then that is very wrong. Some of them and I are like water and electricity – we cannot work together,” said Tobiko.

Tobiko said if her issues are not addressed, she has several options to make ahead of the next general election, including listening to her followers on which direction to take.
