Kenya: Kamotho Mbau Criticise Hopefuls

Maragua MP Elias Mbau and former Cabinet minister Joseph Kamotho have said some Murang'a politicians are not development conscious.

The two politicians cautioned residents against the politicians whom they did not mention. Mbau said some of the aspirants who have expressed their interest in various elective seats in Murang'a have failed in their previous offices.

Speaking at Kianjiru-ini Primary School in Maragua on Saturday, Mbau said the aspirants "did nothing for Murang'a when they occupied senior government positions".

"We have people who have declared interest for political seats yet they cannot mention a single project they have initiated in any of the constituencies," Mbau said.

Kamotho, who is credited for initiating the construction of secondary schools in the area when he was the Education minister, asked the voters to shun such candidates.

"You should not listen to people who have done nothing for you because they may not deliver if you elect them," Kamotho, who is eyeing the Murang'a senate seat, said.
