Po­lit­i­cal par­ties Act causes trou­ble and in­sta­bil­ity

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

The sign­ing into law of the Po­lit­i­cal Par­ties Amend­ment Bill 2016 by Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta brought a lot of po­lit­i­cal in­dis­ci­pline. With the gen­eral elec­tion slated for Au­gust next year, those elected are al­ready cross­ing the bridge be­fore reach­ing it. In­stead of serv­ing their con­stituents, they are busy switch­ing par­ties, form­ing and break­ing al­liances. They are al­ready in cam­paign mode. These lead­ers should fo­cus on what they were elected to do be­fore cam­paign­ing for 2017 and, sur­pris­ingly, al­ready for 2022.
