An American bishop has asked Kenyans to elect leaders of integrity to elective positions in the March election.
Bishop Charles Henderson of the Association of Evangelical Gospel Assemblies (AEGA) said only people who have been tried, tested and proved capable should be voted to office for the country to reclaim its international image.
Henderson said 50 years after independence, some Kenyans were still lacking in basics life necessities such as a food, shelter, education, medical services and water. He said this would not have occurred if good leaders had been put in positions of authority.
"US has been able to reach where it is because citizens have always scrutinised those people vying for presidency, senate, governorship and House of Representative seats," said Henderson.
He said Kenyans should shun tribalism if they want to pick good leaders and instead scrutinise individual track records and ability to accomplish pledges by each aspirant before casting the ballot.
