I’m still com­mit­ted to serv­ing Kwale peo­ple – Mvurya

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

Kwale Gov­er­nor Salim Mvurya has urged res­i­dents not to be car­ried away by the cur­rent po­lit­i­cal wave af­ter he joined the Ju­bilee Party. He urged them not to “dis­rupt your long-time peace­ful co­ex­is­tence” due to po­lit­i­cal dif­fer­ences. “Re­gard­less of po­lit­i­cal party, I will re­main com­mit­ted to serve my peo­ple in Kwale,” he said. Speak­ing dur­ing a funds drive at Tiwi on Sun­day, Mvurya said he will not re­spond to his crit­ics. He said his woes started in 2013 and all along, he has been fought by peo­ple who are not even in­ter­ested in vy­ing for gov­er­nor. “You must be care­ful and avoid mak­ing the mis­take of vot­ing in a leader just be­cause of a po­lit­i­cal party, in­stead of their de­vel­op­ment track record. We must re­main fo­cused,” Mvurya said. Lands ex­ec­u­tive Ali Mafimbo said he is among those who ad­vised Mvurya to ditch ODM.
