North Mugirango MP Joash Nyamoko has told off a section of leaders who he accused of using every opportunity they get to divide other leaders.
Nyamoko who was speaking on Tuesday in Nyamira Town during the swearing-in of Dr James Gesami emphasized that those propagating divisive politics should instead forge unity of purpose to develop the county.
“There is nothing that we can achieve if we are not united because development in our county depends on how well we combine efforts towards our common good,” Nyamoko said.
His sentiments were directed at his colleagues Vincent Kemosi, West Mugirango MP, the Nyamira County Woman Representative Jerusha Momanyi and Borabu MP Ben Momanyi who skipped Tuesday’s event.
“All our leaders should 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.
The legislator singled out recent meetings by other communities in preparation for the 2022 general election, saying there is a need to similarly unite the Gusii community to boost their bargaining power for the national cake.
“If you look around what is currently happening is that other communities have met today to plan how to gain government positions come next year. Why don’t we do the same so that we have our fair share with the next government.” Nyamoko posed.
The sentiments were echoed by Governor Amos Nyaribo, who said there is no need of fighting each other as leaders.
“For now, we need to march on as a group towards development. We should therefore embrace unity if at all we need to succeed as a community,” Nyaribo said.
