Trans Nzoia women's representative Janet Nangabo has defended President Uhuru's parastatals appointments. Addressing residents of Kiminini constituency in Trans Nzoia yesterday during a burial, Nangabo said 70 per cent of other parastatals jobs have been given to the youth.
"The work of the heads that were recently appointed by the President is to chair the boards. Other jobs including implementation is done by other people whose majority are the youth" she said.
Nangabo asked Western leaders not to sideline their counterparts from other regions because of the different political stand. Leaders from Western including Senator Moses Wetang'ula have condemned Last Friday's appointments citing lack of gender and regional balance.
"There is no need for Western leaders not to work with the government because of their different political stand. We must work closely with the government for the sake of development" said Nangabo.
She asked Trans Nzoia leaders to stop speaking about the recent Bungoma senatorial by elections and embark on development. "We understand that Bungoma people chose Moses Wetang'ula and we have accepted that as new Ford Kenya party, what is important is for all of us to cooperate regardless of our parties for the betterment of our people" said Nangabo.
