Nyamira Governor Amos Nyaribo has told off his critics who think they will defeat him by tainting his name.
“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.”
The county boss asked the leaders to respect his office and stop talking ill of him every time, adding that they should concentrate on their electorates.
“Someone cannot win in an election by tainting another person’s name. We are all leaders and, we need to conduct ourselves respectfully. If it is politics, let us undertake it as civilized people,” Nyaribo said.
Nyaribo said the county deserves services and not unending criticism from his opponents.
Speaking on Tuesday at the Nyamira County Referral Hospital during the commissioning of the second batch of hospital equipment Nyaribo said, the county deserves services not unending criticism from his opponents.
The event saw the handing over of medical supplies worth over Shs 22.6 million to various health facilities across the county.
Present at the event was Deputy Governor James Gesami, Health CEC Gladys Momanyi, Health Chief Officer Jack Magara, Finance CEC Emily Ongaga, Chief officer Dominic Barare among others.
Nyaribo further cited a section of MPs from the region over misuse of NG/CDF funds.
“You have all seen how some members of parliament have been going around the county tainting my name, talking ill of me as the governor simply because they want to be voted in as governor next year. I am wondering because if they cannot account for CDF funds, how will they account for funds in the whole county?” Nyaribo posed.
Nyaribo called for unity of purpose from the region’s leaders ahead of the 2022 general elections, which he said will be determined by the way the community will be organized.
“I wish to ask our leaders to remain united because there is nothing that we can do if we are divided. Other Communities have come together to fight for their people, 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.”
