The battle between Kabete MP Ferdinand Waititu and Kiambu senator John Kabogo appears to have kept the president far from his home district.
President Uhuru, while talking as of late amid Focal Kenya pioneers’ meeting at the Sagana State Lodge in Nyeri, said that Kabogo and Waititu preferred battling “before me” at whatever point he visits the district, which has kept him away from Kiambu.
“Both are my friends, but when I meet one in a church, the other thinks I’m supporting his enemy, which is not the case. When two bulls fight, the grass suffers and in this case, it is the mwananchi who is losing out,” said Uhuru.
The president asked both pioneers who were present; to cooperate, saying wrangles will just cost the district the abundantly required improvement. Inhabitants who identifies with The residents termed the feelings by the Head of State as disillusioning and unfortunate.
James Maina, an occupant of Thika said the president wasn’t right to scorn voters just due to the two legislators.
“If the president is not happy with the
governor and the MPs, he should not refuse to visit the county. It is not William Kabogo and Waititu
who elected him,” said Maina.
Kiambu county spokesman Machel Waikenda
said, “The president was just trying to prevail
upon leaders to work together.”
