Nyamira County Governor Amos Nyaribo has told his critics to respect his office and stop talking ill of him every time.
He said the county deserves services and not unending criticism from his opponents.
The county boss spoke on Tuesday in Nyamira Town during the swearing-in ceremony of former West Mugirango MP James Gesami, his deputy.
“Some of my critics have been taking a lot of their time talking ill of me and undermining my leadership, but I wish to remind them that they should respect the office we hold. All that we want as a government is to serve the people of Nyamira not exchanging words in various platforms unnecessarily,” Nyaribo said.
Nyaribo called for unity of purpose from the region’s leaders ahead of the 2022 general elections.
“I wish to ask our leaders to remain united for us as a community to attain our goals. Other communities have come together to fight for their people and also as the Gusii community we must fight hard for our space and that can only be achieved when we remain united and focused but not undermining one another,” he added.
Similar sentiments were echoed by North Mugirango MP Joash Nyamoko who called upon the leaders in the county to come together to enable them to strategize on the region’s political future and told off a section of leaders who keep on dividing others.
“I wish to ask our leaders to remain united because there is nothing that we can do if we are divided. All our leaders would have availed themselves here but I am wondering where they are now. Other communities have come together to fight for their people but ours is just undermining one another which is not the right way to go,” Nyamoko said.
