Muslims living Trans Nzoia have urged residents consider them when giving out county jobs. Led by Hashim Mohammed, they said: "As the county prepares for the devolved government, there is need for representatives of all religions to be involved in the development of the county."
Mohammed made the remarks at Kitale's Kenyatta stadium on Friday when he led Muslims in the county to celebrate of Iddul-Adha. "There is need for the electorate and the next leadership of this county to consider Muslims as well in the county government," he said.
The Muslim leader asked Trans Nzoia residents to be peaceful especially this time when general election draws near. He said Muslims are praying for the country to ensure that the forthcoming elections are peaceful to enhance development.
"We pray for the country to be peaceful as Muslim community, we want other religions to do a similar thing for the sake of peace of our country," he said.
