Kanar Seki (UDA) senator candidate exudes confidence that once elected he will unlock and remedy all the ills that are suffocating the county.

A composed Seki, while facing panellists during the senatorial debate, said the county government has surpassed the 35 per cent limit in employment that has forced it to spend a lot of money on recurrent expenditure.

He said the running of a county government is not a one-man show, but it takes the collaboration of all those appointed by the governor.

“As the next senator of Kajiado, I will work closely with the controller of the budget and the senate to streamline the management of the county resources,” said Seki.

Seki, who has a bachelor’s degree in human resources, was part of the Transition Authority that was charged with helping the former county councils transition into the devolved system after the new constitution was promulgated in 2010.

He told the panellists that most counties are forced by the politicians to overstretch in employing their people, which has caused counties to spend more than what is stipulated by laws governing expenditure.

“As a senator charged with the monitoring of county resources from the national treasury and the county’s tax collection, I will ensure that laws are followed to the letter,” said Seki.

He said that if the people of Kajiado elect him in the coming general elections, he will ensure that no single cent will go to waste.

The politician, who has served in various senior positions in Narok and Kajiado county governments, will ensure that the collection of revenue in the county is automated to cut down on monies getting into the wrong hands.

“I will also work hand-in-hand with other leaders in the county from the national and county assemblies to help the county identify more sources of revenue to build on the current base,” said the politician.

Seki said if elected, he will work closely with other people of goodwill and organisations to put an end to injurious practices that have contributed to retarding the growth of the Maasai children.

“Early marriages and FGM have no place in this 21st century and anyone supporting these injurious practices is the enemy of the modern Maasai communities,” said Seki.

The politician said he supports other educative cultural practices like poetry, songs, and dancing which are recognised by UNESCO.

He said he understands what is required of him as a senator and lashed out at some of his contenders, who he said have no idea what is required of them.

The big debate took place at the Nazarene University in Ongata Rongai.
