North­east­ern should vote for Ju­bilee as it has put up projects and ap­pointed lo­cals to state jobs – Duale

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

Ju­bilee has im­ple­mented many projects in North­east­ern, a re­gion that was be­hind in de­vel­op­ment, Garissa Town MP Aden Duale has said.

It has also given North­east­ern peo­ple min­is­te­rial and am­bas­sado­rial po­si­tions, and res­i­dents should re­ward it by re­elect­ing the Ju­bilee lead­ers, he said.

The Na­tional As­sem­bly ma­jor­ity leader spoke on Satur­day at a fundrais­ing for Madaras­sul Abuhu­raira in Adamasajide ward, Wa­jir county.

He urged the North­east­ern coun­ties to re­ward the Ju­bilee ad­min­is­tra­tion by re­elect­ing the lead­ers.

“The Nunow-Mado­gashe road will be fin­ished end of 2016, the Man­dera-El­wak road is al­ready on course and the cer­tifi­cate of the Mado­gasge-Wa­jir road will be is­sued within this month,” Duale said.

The ma­jor­ity leader crit­i­cised Wa­jir lead­ers for dup­ing res­i­dents into the op­po­si­tion, say­ing the re­gion needs to be an ally of the gov­ern­ment and res­i­dents should not be blind Cord fa­nat­ics.

“The Ju­bilee gov­ern­ment has given us free hos­pi­tals, ac­cess roads and jobs, not mean­ing­less pledges,” Duale said.
