Kenya: Share Seats Fairly, Nyachae Tells Kisii

FORMER cabinet minister Simeon Nyachae over the weekend advised leaders from Kisii and Nyamira counties to ensure that electoral seats are equitably distributed.

Nyachae said the community will only remain united if all the clans are considered. He was addressing mourners at Menyinkwa in Kisii during the burial of his cousin John Makinda.

He urged those running for various seats to preach peace saying chaotic campaigns will make the county loose in terms investment. "We must pray for the country and its people because it is only through prayers that we will remain united," he said. He also said that voters should be left to choose leaders of their own choice without intimidation or coercion.
