A university lecturer has told old-timers eyeing the Kiharu constituency seat to leave it to the youth.
University of Nairobi don Kamotho Njenga said the veterans should run for senator and governor.
"We have always been told that we are the future leaders but we cannot lead if the political veterans will not relinquish some of the seats to the youth," said the parliamentary aspirant.
Njenga also urged women to vie for women's representative instead of the parliamentary seat.
He cautioning residents against accepting handouts in exchange for their votes.
"Selling your vote is the same as selling your birth right. You ought to be careful not to allow politicians to deceive. Your vote is your life," he said while urging the youth to register as voters.
