Defence minister Yussuf Haji has said he will tackle education, food, security health and infrastructure if elected the senator of Garissa county.
Haji said it is unfortunate Garissa town, that was once voted as the most peaceful town, is now the most unsecure town. He called on the residents to join hands with the police to beef up security.
"Engaging in blame-game will not help anybody but only make matters worse. As residents of Garissa we need to join hands and work together as one people in ensuring that peace is restored in Garissa," he said.
The Ijara MP was speaking in Balambala district at the weekend when he launched his bid for senator. Haji took issue with the recent killings that have rocked Garissa town and Dadaab.
He urged the locals to vote for him saying he has the experience and leadership skills to tackle insecurity. The Ijara MP said that the county was endowed with a lot of resources which he said if put into proper use would propel the county into greater economic heights.
